DOL District Offices


The U.S. Department of Labor’s (DOL) Division of Energy Employees Occupational Illness Compensation (DEEOIC) has four District Offices around the country. These offices process claims under the Energy Employees Occupational Illness Compensation Program Act (EEOICPA) in four areas:

  • Cleveland, Ohio
  • Denver, Colorado
  • Jacksonville, Florida
  • Seattle, Washington

The jurisdiction for each of these offices is based on the location of where an employee worked last.

When the District Office receives a claim from a Resource Center, a U.S. DOL claims examiner reviews the information to decide if a former worker is eligible for benefits. The examiner then recommends to either approve or deny the claim.

If the claim is approved, the claims examiner will ask the former worker to sign a letter of release. This letter then relieves the U.S. federal government of any future liability. Once the District Office receives the signed letter, the claims examiner will send the former worker a check for the amount they determined was appropriate, along with a white medical benefits card. 

If a claim is denied, the former worker has 60 days from the date of the denial to formally object. A claimant can work with their Resource Center that filed their claim to work through the next steps.

People who want to contact the District Office directly or speak to the claims examiner handling their claim can use the following information. If you aren’t sure which District Office to call, ask the Resource Center representative who submitted the claim. District Offices don’t accept questions by email.
