The clock is ticking to register claims with the September 11 Victim Compensation Fund (VCF) for economic losses due to injuries from the 9/11 attack and its aftermath. Most injured responders or survivors must complete online registration by October 3, 2013. (“Survivors” include residents, students and area workers whose health was harmed by the WTC disaster.)
The New York Committee for Occupational Safety and Health (NYCOSH) is working to spread the word about the VCF. You can get more information, including on how to register, at the NYCOSH website.
The NYCOSH website also has information about the separate WTC Health Program, which does not have the same deadline and offers free monitoring and treatment for covered conditions to those who may have been exposed to toxins at Ground Zero. Tens of thousands of people are eligible for free medical exams and treatment under the program created by the Zadroga Act.
