Radiation Exposure Compensation Act

We assist qualified individuals claim their eligible benefits under the Radiation Exposure Compensation Act (RECA). RECA was established by Congress in 1990 to provide financial compensation to three groups of people.


Uranium miners, millers, or haulers employed for at least one year from January 1, 1942, through December 31, 1971 who developed certain cancers or certain respiratory or kidney diseases.

People who were on site during atmospheric nuclear weapon tests between 1945 and 1962 and became sick.

People who were physically present in specific counties downwind of the Nevada Test Site for at least two years from January 21, 1951, through October 31, 1958 and were diagnosed with specific cancers.

To be eligible for compensation, uranium workers must have received a diagnosis of primary lung cancer, pneumoconiosis, pulmonary fibrosis, cor pulmonale, or silicosis and must have worked in Arizona, Colorado, Idaho, New Mexico, North Dakota, Oregon, South Dakota, Texas, Utah, Washington, or Wyoming. Uranium millers and haulers can also qualify if they have been diagnosed with kidney cancer or kidney diseases.
