Zadroga Act 9/11 Victim Compensation Fund Opens October 3rd for Registration Only

October 3, 2011

By Turley, Hansen & Rosasco on Lawyer Representation

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.
