Cold War Patriots (CWP), a community resource organization that is the nation’s strongest and most sustained voice advocating for worker benefits, will host free information events for Pinellas Plant workers in Florida on Feb. 27 in Lady Lake at 10 a.m. and 2 p.m.
At the events, workers will obtain information about how the Energy Employees Occupational Illness Compensation Program Act (EEOICPA) relates to their current health status. Additionally, for workers who already have their U.S. Department of Labor white medical benefits card and attend a morning session, CWP will introduce its Professional Case Management (PCM) In-Home Care and Impairments Programs. Through these in-home care and impairments divisions, CWP makes it even easier for nuclear weapons workers to maximize the benefits they have earned. It can also help workers increase the monetary compensation for which they qualify.
The 10 a.m. session is customized for workers who have already applied for EEOICPA benefits and have either been awarded a U.S. Department of Labor white medical benefits card or have a pending claim. At the morning session, participants will learn:
• How to file for medical expense reimbursement
• How impairment evaluations can help them qualify for additional monetary compensation
• Why they should add conditions to an existing claim
• Why in-home care might be beneficial to them
• What to do if some of their claims have been approved (or are pending) while others have been denied
The 2 p.m. session is for workers who haven’t yet applied for benefits or those whose claims have been denied. Afternoon participants will learn:
• If they qualify for up to $400,000 in monetary compensation and free healthcare
• How to apply for benefits
• What benefits are included
• How to reopen denied claims
