Under the EEOICPA, in order to establish Part E Causation evidence must show that exposure to a toxic substance at a covered facility was a significant factor in causing, contributing to or aggravating the claimed condition.
Your DEEOIC district office claims examiner (CE) will use a variety of tools to establish this connection. This will include information from the Department of Energy about the specific covered facility. Information contained in the Site Exposure Matrices database developed by the Department of Labor.
Your assigned CE may also make a referral to a physician, industrial hygienist or toxicologist while developing Part E Causation of your claim.
Under Part E, where the employee is deceased, his or her death must also be related to the claimed condition in order for a survivor claim to be accepted. However, if the covered employee died due to a non-covered illness the survivor has the option to elect to receive the payment that the covered Part E employee would have received, had he/she not died prior to payment, rather than survivor benefits.
