Nevada Test Site Workers Cancer Benefit Programs
Nevada Test Site Workers Compensation
These programs are intended to provide between $75,000 - $400,000 in financial compensation for claimants who were among the civilians or military personnel working at certain atmospheric nuclear testing locations during the relevant time periods, and who acquired one of the various illnesses due to their exposure there. You may qualify for compensation if you or a family member have had internal cancer or leukemia since 1951 (even if the family member is deceased) – or if you get cancer in the future.
Spouses or children or grandchildren are considered eligible survivors and may make a claim on behalf of a deceased family member who meets the criteria for the Nevada Test Site Workers compensation programs.

At the National Cancer Benefits Center, we understand how difficult it can be to track down all the documentation needed to prove your or your claimant’s eligibility. That’s why we offer investigative research services when you contract with us.
Note: This is not a class-action lawsuit, but rather a group of government programs. The programs have been approved and the compensation made available by the United States Congress.
If you or a family member worked at a location where atmospheric nuclear testing was conducted, contact the National Cancer Benefits Center to find out whether you’re entitled to compensation from the federal government. Call us at (800) 414-4328 or use our online form to request more information.
