Radiation Dose Reconstruction
Special Exposure Cohort (SEC)
The SEC was established by The Act and allows eligible claims to be compensated without the completion of a radiation dose reconstruction or determination of the probability of causation. To qualify for compensation under the SEC, a covered employee must have:
▪ at least one of the 22 “specified cancers” and
▪ worked for a specified period of time at one of the SEC work sites.
Congress also allowed for additional groups of employees (called classes of employees) to be added to the SEC. Groups of employees and work sites can be considered for addition to the SEC through a petition process. The petition process is run by NIOSH on behalf of the Department of Health and Human Services (HHS).
