News & Events

Cold War Patriots has kicked off its national tour of town hall meetings. The events are for former nuclear and uranium workers and their survivors and explain the Energy Employees Occupational Illness Compensation Program (EEOICP) and the Radiation Exposure Compensation Act (RECA).

These programs are administered by the Department of Labor (DOL). They offer monetary compensation and healthcare benefits to workers who participated in the nuclear weapons program from 1942 until the present day and became sick because of exposure to radiation or other toxic substances.

At the meetings, information is available for former or current nuclear weapons or uranium workers who:

  • Have been approved for EEOICP or RECA benefits and have already received a U.S. DOL white medical benefits card but want to learn more about the benefits available to them, including in-home care
  • Have an EEOICP or RECA application that is pending
  • Have applied for EEOICPA or RECA benefits but were denied
  • Have never applied for EEOICPA or RECA benefits

If you fit the bill, please join us!

We learned an important lesson from the recently released annual report from the Ombudsman for the Energy Employees Occupational Illness Compensation Program. One of the biggest complaints former or current workers like you have is the lack of knowledge about the EEOICPA program. One of CWP’s missions is to conduct outreach meetings to bridge that gap and get you the information you need to make informed decisions.

At our events, you can ask questions and meet with advocates and other local resources. They can help you better understand the financial compensation and medical benefits you’ve earned, as well as guide you through these often-complex government programs.

Chances are if you worked at a nuclear weapons or uranium plant, there’s a Cold War Patriots event headed your way! Check our event calendar for updated listings, or contact us to be put on a mailing list to receive notification about upcoming events.
