Type: Rule
Date: 2020-12-09
Agency: Department of Justice
The Department of Justice (``the Department'') is publishing this document to inform the public of the Department's procedures for filing claims under the Radiation Exposure Compensation Act (``RECA'') at the statutory filing deadline. RECA requires that claims shall be barred unless filed within 22 years after the date of enactment of the Radiation Exposure Compensation Act Amendments of 2000. The Department is publishing this document to articulate its policy that RECA claims that bear a date of July 11, 2022 on the postmark or stamp by another commercial carrier shall be deemed timely filed upon receipt by the Radiation Exposure Compensation Program. The Department will return untimely claims and will not accept electronic submissions. Consistent with the statutory requirement that the Department make a determination within 12 months of filing for timely filed claims, documentation to establish the eligibility of any potential beneficiary of an awarded claim must be provided by July 12, 2023, or the award shall be deemed rejected.
