On January 2, 2011, President Obama signed the Zadroga Act, which reopens the September 11th Victim Compensation Fundof 2001. The Zadroga Act expanded the scope of the original VCF to enable more individuals who suffered physical injury or death as a result of the September 11th attacks to obtain compensation from the program. The VCF will accept claims for five years and will complete the payment of claims during 2016-17. you must submit your claim within two years of the date you know of the physical injury or death resulting from the attacks (or, if you already know of the physical injury or death in question, within two years of the date that the regulations are finally updated).
Congress has appropriated a fixed sum of money for the VCF. This fixed sum is $2.775 billion. Congress has also determined that $875 million of that total amount may be paid out in the first five years of the VCF program. The remainder may be paid in the sixth year.
