Social Security Disability Claims for 9/11 Victims
The Importance of Winning Social Security Disability Claims in Conjunction with VCF Claims
In our years of experience exclusively representing 9/11 victims, we have learned just how important it is to win a Social Security Disability (SSDI) claim in conjunction with a 9/11 Victim Compensation Fund (VCF) claim. If you have become sick as a result of exposure to the “Crash Site Area” or time at Ground Zero, our 9/11 lawyers can help you file your SSDI application and VCF application in order to get the benefits and awards appropriate for the effects and illnesses you are experiencing.
Social Security Benefits
The Social Security Administration has allotted funds to Social Security benefits, which include retirement benefits, disability benefits, and other compensation for 9/11 victims. If you have a 9/11 cancer or condition, or your health was otherwise impacted by the September 11, 2001 World Trade Center attacks, you could be eligible for claiming benefits through SSDI and the VCF.
9/11 Victim Compensation Fund: Social Security FAQ
- If you are out of work, you will need some income while your 9/11 Victim Compensation Fund (VCF) claim is pending. Our 9/11 lawyers know how to expedite the approval of your Social Security Disability claim and win to directly benefit your claim.
- Once we have authorized proof that you are disabled under Social Security’s strict standards for disability, we will be able to obtain a substantial award from the 9/11 Victim Compensation Fund.
- You will be entitled to Medicare health coverage for your non-9/11 health and medical conditions, while also receiving free lifetime health care and prescriptions for all your 9/11-related conditions through the WTC Health Program medical providers.
- If your Social Security Disability claim is approved, your children may also be entitled to benefits.
