EEOICPA and RECA Program
In October 2000, the U.S. Congress enacted the Energy Employees Occupational Illness Compensation Program Act (EEOICPA). The purpose of the act is to provide health benefits and compassionate compensation of up to $400,000 for current or former employees (or their survivors) who worked in the nuclear weapons or uranium industry and were exposed to radioactivity and other dangerous toxic substances.
Former and current nuclear weapons and uranium workers are eligible to receive free periodic medical screenings. These screenings are to detect any illnesses that may have come from exposure to radioactive or toxic substances in the workplace.
