Former Rocky Flats Workers Invited to Breakfast to Learn More About EEOICPA Benefits
Arvada, CO – More than 50,000 former Rocky Flats workers may qualify for benefits, including a monetary award and no-cost health care, as a result of the radioactive exposure they endured while working at Rocky Flats. Former workers can learn more about these benefits, whether they are eligible, and spend time getting to know other workers by attending the upcoming Atomic Worker Breakfast event hosted by Nuclear Care Partners.
The Atomic Worker Breakfast is free to all former workers and will take place on Wednesday, August 1 from 9:30 a.m. – 11:00 a.m. at I-HOP on 5280 Wadsworth Bypass in Arvada, Colorado. Former workers can RSVP to the event by calling 303-223-4290.
At the Atomic Worker Breakfast, former workers will learn more about the monetary and medical benefits from the Energy Employees Occupational Illness Program Act (EEOICPA). The following topics will also be covered:
- How to access the free health screening program
- How to file a successful EEOICPA claim
- What to do if an EEOICPA claim has been denied or rejected
- What benefits are available and how to access them
- How to file for or update an impairment rating

“It’s important for Rocky Flats workers to know what benefits they’re entitled to and what the program offers,” said Lori Schuster, Community Outreach Manager at Nuclear Care Partners. “This event is about getting folks together, letting them know their options, and getting them the help they need.”
