Black Lung Compensation


For protection and compensation of disabled coal miners, the Black Lung Benefits Act (BLBA) came in to existence. It provides for monthly payments to and medical treatment for coal miners totally disabled from pneumoconiosis (black lung disease) arising from employment in or around the nation's coal mines. The BLBA also provides for augmented payments to miners based on the number of his or her dependents and to certain survivors of miners who died due to or while totally disabled from pneumoconiosis. Each coal mine operator is required to pay an excise tax, based on the operator's tonnage and price of coal sold, to support payment of benefits to miners under the Act and the cost of administering the Act. Also there is the Black Lung Disability Trust Fund which also pays the disabled employees certain amounts in certain conditions.
