Today is the Deadline for 9/11 Responders to Register for Cancer Compensation

Oct 14, 2014

For September 11th responders and survivors diagnosed with certain cancers prior to October 12, 2012, today is the deadline to register with the September 11th Victim Compensation Fund (VCF). Those who do not register by the October 14, 2014 deadline become ineligible to file claims for the program’s benefits.

Representatives Carolyn B. Maloney, Jerrold Nadler, and Peter King held a press conference, along with first responders, labor leaders, community representatives and advocates for 9/11 survivors recently held a press conference to stress the importance of the registration deadline, 9/11 Health Watch reports. Rep. King said, “We must ensure that our 9/11 heroes receive the care they deserve and are not left fighting alone because of ineligibility.” He urged anyone who might be eligible for compensation “to visit immediately and determine if you should register to preserve your right to file a claim.”

Individuals with a qualified condition, which includes more than 60 cancers and other conditions caused by toxic exposure, have two years from the date of diagnosis to file a registration form in order to preserve the right to file a claim, according to 9/11 Health Watch. The claim process is separate, but an individual must be registered in order to file a claim.

VCF compensation applies to injured and ill 9/11 first responders, recovery workers and volunteers, and survivors from the World Trade Center site, the Pentagon and the Shankesville, Pennsylvania crash site. Those who believe they are eligible for compensation can register at The web site provides information about the registration process as well as a list of cancers and other health conditions covered by the program.
