Lawrence Livermore Nuclear Site
The Lawrence Livermore National Laboratory was founded in 1952 to help with the creation of the hydrogen bomb. The lab had another purpose as well—to provide some competition for the Los Alamos Lab, thus speeding up and improving the development process. The facility is located in Livermore, California, approximately 40 miles from San Francisco. The lab has been involved in the design of every nuclear weapon created in the United States.
Workers at Lawrence Livermore in the earlier days of its operation were exposed to harmful levels of radiation and other chemicals and substances known to cause a variety of diseases. The EEOICPA serves to provide workers from Lawrence Livermore and similar nuclear development facilities with benefits, including health care services, based on the diseases they developed due to their employment.
At Twilight Health, we specialize in helping nuclear and uranium workers to get their benefits and to get the care they need using those benefits. If you worked at Lawrence Livermore and developed cancer or another disease or illness from your work, please get in touch with us as soon as possible. We are here to answer your questions and ensure you get the help you need for your illness.

The Facility and Scope of Work
The main Lawrence Livermore National Laboratory is situated on 820 acres in Livermore, CA, with another separate facility on 7,000 acres in the area between Tracy, CA, and Livermore. The facility was developed on an old naval air station, which provided much more room than the Berkeley campus where the Lawrence Livermore team originated from.
Lawrence Livermore was the first to develop thermonuclear warheads that could be launched from submarines, as well as high-yield warheads small enough to fit multiple warheads on a missile. The lab was also involved in research into fusion energy and advanced computations.
Compensation for Workers
As one of the facilities listed under the EEOICPA, workers from Lawrence Livermore are able to obtain significant benefits if they qualify based on their illness and how that illness was developed. After the initial application process, beneficiaries can expect a wide range of medical care options depending on their situation.
The compensation for Lawmaker Livermore workers can include free health care services, including doctor’s visits, prescription medications, modifications to homes, modifications to vehicles, mental health care, in-home health care, training of family as personal caregivers and much more. As long as the medical service is intended to treat the illness or condition that resulted from working at Lawrence Livermore, the costs are covered.
