Resources Available for Pantex Plant Workers

Former employees may qualify as part of a new Special Exposure Cohort class.

A U.S. Department of Labor press release has announced that former Pantex plant workers in Amarillo, Texas, may qualify as part of a new Special Exposure Cohort class that will ease the process of filing Energy Employees Occupational Illness Compensation Program Act claims.

The EEOICPA program provides compensation and benefits to workers who become ill as a result of exposure to radiation, beryllium, or silica while employed at U.S. Department of Energy nuclear weapons facilities. Survivors of these workers may also receive benefits.

The program was established in October 2000. Part B of EEOICPA, effective on July 31, 2001, compensates current or former employees (or their survivors) of the Department of Energy, its predecessor agencies, and certain of its vendors, contractors, and subcontractors, who were diagnosed with a radiogenic cancer, chronic beryllium disease, beryllium sensitivity, or chronic silicosis as a result of exposure to radiation, beryllium, or silica while employed at covered facilities.
