Atomic Veterans®: Bikini Atoll and Enewetak Atoll, Marshall Islands
Bikini Atoll and Enewetak Atoll, a necklace of coral islands in the Marshall Islands, was subjected to repeated nuclear testing campaigns by the U.S. government from 1946-1958. Since then, Congress has funded a program to compensate veterans (and their families) $75,000 who participated in these atmospheric nuclear tests who subsequently acquired a covered cancer as a result of exposure to radiation.
If you are among those veterans or are a family member of one, we can help you.
Providing Compensation to Americans Who Have Been Subjected to Government-Created Radiation
We understand how difficult it can be to comply with all of the government’s rules and regulations to complete the claims process. Our team can guide you through the claims process and help you get the financial compensation you’re entitled to. Eligible survivors such as spouses, children, or grandchildren, may make a claim on behalf of a deceased family member who otherwise meets the criteria for the Atomic Veterans® compensation program.
Atomic Veterans® Cancer Benefits Program
This program offers $75,000 for each claimant* who was among military personnel physically present at certain U.S. atmospheric nuclear testing locations during the relevant time periods and subsequently developed a covered cancer caused by the exposure.
* Spouses, children, and grandchildren are considered eligible survivors and may make a claim on behalf of a deceased claimant.
