Who We Serve
Department of Labor White Card Insurance
Eligible recipients of EEOICPA & RECA will receive “white card” to help access their medical benefits.
In order to be eligible for EEOICPA/RECA benefits, an individual must have been employed at a covered Department of Energy facility, an approved atomic weapons facility, or at a permitted beryllium vendor. An individual must also have one of the covered conditions as a result of exposure to radiation, beryllium, or silica while employed at an accepted facility.

Eligibility requirements vary by location and condition.
