A Clear Look at Part E of the EEOICPA

EEOICPA, Summarized
November 29, 2014

In our continuing efforts to make the Energy Employees Occupational Illness Compensation Program Act (EEOICPA) both more accessible and understandable, we’ve created a series of short videos

Hugh discusses the meaning of Survivor Benefits and claims under the EEOICPA and explains the distinction between survivor benefits under Part B and Part E of the Act. Under Part B, the survivors are paid $150,000 because the worker had cancer and do not need to be dependent on the worker. However, under Part E, which is a federal workers compensation program, the survivor must show that the illness or condition led to the worker’s death and were dependent on the worker or incapable of self-support at the time of the worker’s death. They are paid $125,000 up to $175,000 under Part E.

Do you need an attorney to guide you in understanding Parts B and E of the EEOICPA so you can best get the compensation you deserve? Let us help.
