Nuclear Care Partners is hosting a free resource workshop to help former AEC Compound and uranium workers access the federal benefits they've earned to compensate for their exposure to radiation and toxic chemicals during their work on behalf of the United States' defense.

All former atomic workers are invited to attend the workshop, which will include the following information:

• How to file or refile a successful claim. Learn why cases get denied and how to file a successful claim from R. Hugh Stephens, partner at Stephens & Stephens.

• What to do with your monetary award.Find out how to plan for your financial future and protect your monetary award with estate planning, wills and trusts presented by Michael Burke, partner at Kain & Burke.

• Home care questions you should ask. As home care companies approach you about using your health benefit, learn what questions you should be asking. John Kelley, community outreach manager at Nuclear Care Partners, will lead this session.

The workshops will take place Tuesday, Oct. 17, 2 p.m. at the Mesa County Library, 443 N. 6th Street, Grand Junction; and Wednesday, Oct. 18, 5 p.m., at Grand Mesa Oncology, 1501 E. 3rd Street, Delta.
