9/11 Victim Compensation Fund Registration: Important Information You Need To Know If You Missed The October 3rd Registration Deadline
According to the 9/11 Victim Compensation Fund’s registration guidelines, as of October 3, 2011, those who knew or should have reasonably known of physical harm resulting from the 9/11 terrorist attacks should have registered by last Thursday, October 3, 2013. If you have not registered with the 9/11 Victim Compensation Fund and you meet the following criteria as shown in the chart below, you may still be eligible to register and file a claim.
Please keep in mind that there is a difference between REGISTERING and FILING a claim with the VCF.
If you have a 9/11 related cancer and you were diagnosed before October 12, 2012 you have until October 12, 2014 to register with the 9/11 Victim Compensation Fund. Should the 9/11 Victim Compensation add any other illnesses as a covered condition, you will have 2 years from the date the illness was added, but no later than October 3, 2016, which is when the VCF officially closes. For example, prostate cancer will officially be added as a covered illness under the Zadroga Act as of October 21, 2013. Anyone who has been diagnosed with prostate cancer must register with the 9/11 Victim Compensation Fund no later than October 21, 2015.
