The Good News! – The 9/11 Victim Compensation Fund has made substantial progress making decisions on the oldest claims. As of the end of 2016, almost 2,500 VCF compensation claims were awaiting a decision where the request for compensation had been made in 2015 or earlier. Since then, approximately 35% (or 875) have been decided. That is an amazing increase in the Fund’s productivity while not sacrificing quality.
