What is EECAP?
How EECAP started
EECAP began in 2005 when Deb Goode Jerison began helping her mother, who had first applied for EEOICPA compensation in 2001, with her claim. Deb was appalled at the level of technical expertise and complicated information NIOSH and DOL expected her mother, an 80-year-old in poor health, to be able to provide. Deb dug in and learned as much as she could about the process.
