The new Zadroga Act 9/11 Victim Compensation Fund officially opened for business today. In a surprise move, VCF Special Master Sheila Birnbaum has establissed a three step “phased in” application process starting today. Attorneys (or claimants without representation) can immediately “register” for the 9/11 Victim Compensation Fund here. A new “Eligibility Form” will be released to the public on or about 10/28/2011. On or about November 28, 2011, the Special Master will finally release the actual “Compensation Claim Form”. Eligible claimants will be able to see a new “Document Checklist” so they or their representatives can start assembling all necessary documents to perfect the claim.

Will Zadroga 9/11 Victim Compensation Fund Application Forms be Ready on October 3rd?

By on Lawyer Representation

The 9/11 Victim Compensation Fund Final Rules state that the Fund will be “open” to receive claims next Monday, October 3, 2011. However, to date, the all important 9/11 VCF application forms and claim filing instructions have not been posted on the Department of Justice website. Zadroga attorneys will then have a chance to digest the forms and begin the process of assembling all the information necessary for their clients to receive both the “economic damages” and “non-economic damages” they deserve.
As soon as the new 9/11 VCF forms are available, we will post them here.
