9/11 Victim Compensation Fund Deadline Approaching

Compensation Fund Deadline

If you were diagnosed with a 9/11-related cancer before October 12, 2012, then you have until October 12, 2014 to register with the 9/11 Victim Compensation Fund (VCF). The list of 9/11-related cancers can be found here.

This deadline only applies to 9/11 responders diagnosed with cancer before October 12, 2012. If you were diagnosed with cancer after October 12, 2012 then you have within two years of your diagnosis to register.

The VCF provides financial compensation for sick or injured 9/11 responders. By submitting a registration form, you are registering with the VCF as a potential claimant. Once you are registered with the VCF, you may begin the process of submitting a claim.
