Who is Eligible for the 9/11 Victim Compensation Fund?
Hi, I'm Troy Rosasco. I'm a partner at Turley, Hansen & Rosasco and we're 9/11 Victim Compensation Fund lawyers. A common question I hear is whether or not you need to be a first responder to be eligible for the 9/11 Victim Compensation Fund. There are also other categories of individuals who are eligible for the fund. These include all residents of Lower Manhattan who live below Canal Street between the time period of 9/11, 2001 and May 30th of 2002. This also includes any and all workers who work below Canal Street during the same time period. The proof requirements for Downtown residents and workers are a little bit different than first responders. If you have any questions about whether or not you are eligible as a Downtown resident or worker, please give us a call at 1-855-WTC-INFO.Return to Videos
