By Hansen & Rosasco

On September 15, 2016, the 9/11 Victim Compensation Fund (VCF) extended deadlines to file claims for compensation. The new VCF deadlines substantially benefit many victims who were previously told that they had missed filing or registration deadlines.

Anyone who was previously told by any source that they missed a filing deadline should call our office today at 1-855-WTC-INFO (1-855-982-4636) to see if they can now file under the new deadlines.

9/11 Victim Compensation Fund: How to File a Claim Now?

By Hansen & Rosasco

most important thing to do if you were diagnosed with a 9/11 covered condition today would be to “register” your claim with the Victim Compensation Fund. “Registration” is different from “filing” a 9/11 VCF claim. You can register your 9/11 claim without actually filing your claim. This will protect you from missing important filing deadlines.
