Nuclear Care Partners Sponsors Rocky Flats Retirees Breakfast
Arvada, CO – For nearly 40 years, nuclear weapons parts were produced at the Rocky Flats Plant, located just a few miles northwest of downtown Denver. From 1952 to 1989, Rocky Flats workers used plutonium to build nuclear weapons triggers, called “pits”, that were sent to Texas to be incorporated into weapons. The plant also used other materials such as uranium and beryllium to make various weapons parts.
As a result of chemical or radiation exposure at the plant, more than 50,000 former Rocky Flats workers may qualify for medical benefits and financial compensation through the Energy Employee Occupational Illness Program Act (EEOICPA). Former workers can learn more about these benefits and their eligibility, as well as connect with other former Rocky Flats workers at the upcoming Rocky Flats Retirees Breakfast sponsored by Nuclear Care Partners.
Lori Shanks, local Community Outreach Manager, will be available to answer questions regarding the following topics:
• First Time Filing for Benefits
• Free Medical Screenings
• Denied Claims
• Medical Benefits
• Accessing White Card Benefits
• Preventative Health Visits
• Skilled Nursing Care
• Financial Compensation
• Home Health Care
• Out-of-Pocket Expense Reimbursement
• And Much More
The Rocky Flats Retirees Breakfast is free to all former Rocky Flats workers and will be held on Wednesday, June 19 at 9:30 a.m. The event will take place at IHOP located at 5280 Wadsworth Bypass in Arvada, Colorado. Former workers can RSVP to the event by calling 303-225-9396.
“It’s so special to be able to bring all of these workers together and simply give them an opportunity to reconnect and reminisce,” said Lori Shanks, Community Outreach Manager at Nuclear Care Partners. “These amazing men and women unknowingly sacrificed their health for our country. We want to give back by helping them in any way we can and treat them to some delicious breakfast!”
