The EEOICPA was enacted by congress under the Department of Labor in October 2000. As a result of energy workers put in harm’s way by construction of nuclear weapons during the Cold War Era without their knowledge, consent or proper protective gear, the act was created. Implementation of EEOICPA not only provides medical benefits to qualifying current and retired workers, but also compensation for workers and survivors eligible. To date, over $14 billion dollars have been paid out in monetary compensation and medical benefits under the EEOICPA.
