Federal Victim Compensation Fund

The September 11th Victim Compensation Fund (VCF) is administered by the Department of Justice and is separate from the WTC Health Program. The VCF provides compensation for any individual (or a personal representative of a deceased individual) that suffered physical harm or illness, or was killed as a result of the terrorist-related aircraft crashes of September 11, 2001, or the debris removal efforts that took place in the immediate aftermath of those crashes. For more information about, or to apply to the VCF, visit www.vcf.gov or call 1-855-885-1555.

New York State Workers’ Compensation Law

On November 13, 2013, New York Governor Andrew M. Cuomo signed significant protections for World Trade Center workers into the New York State Workers' Compensation Law under Article 8-A. The legislation extends and enhances workers' compensation eligibility and benefits for World Trade Center workers. Most notably, the legislation extends the deadline period for filing Form WTC-12, registration of Participation in World Trade Center Rescue, Recovery and/or Clean-up Operations, with a deadline to September 11, 2014; reopens previously time-barred World Trade Center claims and considers them timely; and adds qualifying conditions to the law. More information on the New York Workers’ Compensation Law pertaining to protections for World Trade Center workers can be found at www.wcb.ny.gov or by calling toll-free 1-855-WTC-2014 (1-855-982-2014).
