If you have been diagnosed with any 9/11 related cancer or illness, it is important to register with the 9/11 Victim Compensation Fund as soon as possible to reserve your right to file a future claim. Specific registration deadline dates apply for different circumstances. For more information about registration deadline dates and which ones apply to you, click here. It is also important to make sure that if you plan on applying to the September 11th Victim Compensation Fund, that your illnesses have been certified by the World Trade Center Health Program. Certification is an eligibility requirement of the VCF.
