Part E of the Energy Employees Occupational Illness Compensation Program Act (EEOICPA) provides for an impairment benefit. While a claim for impairment benefits can be filed at any time, the Department of Labor (DOL) cannot make a determination on an impairment claim until the employee has received a Part E final decision from DOL’s Division of Energy Employees Occupational Illness Compensation’s (DEEOIC) Final Adjudication Branch (FAB), which concludes that he or she contracted a covered illness due to exposure to a toxic substance at a covered Department of Energy facility or Radiation Exposure Compensation Act Section 5 facility.
