THE FEDERAL BLACK LUNG PROGRAM
IN WEST VIRGINIA
THE BLACK LUNG BENEFITS ACT OF 1973 FOR COAL MINERS
In 1973, the Black Lung Benefits Act was passed and required monthly payments and medical benefits to coal miners who were completely disabled from black lung disease acquired during employment. This law also requires coal companies to provide monthly benefits to a coal miner’s dependent survivors if the black lung caused his or her death. If you are afflicted by black lung disease that was caused by coal mining and would like to file a claim, contact the law offices of G. Todd Houck in Beckley, WV, and Mullens, WV, as soon as possible.
