- EEOICPA was created by Congress to compensate Cold War workers with work-related illnesses resulting from chemical and radiation exposure
- Up to $400,000 in tax-free lump sum, impairment and lost wages compensation
- Free Medical Care
The race to develop nuclear weapons in the early part of the twentieth century involved thousands of workers—workers who were exposed to radiation and harmful chemicals, and who eventually developed illnesses, cancer, and other diseases because of their exposure. In an effort to compensate these workers for their sacrifice, the Energy Employees Occupational Illness Compensation Program Act was passed in 2000.
