Who’s Eligible for 9/11 Programs

First responders and individuals living, working, volunteering, and going to school near the WTC exposure zone breathed toxic air containing a host of known carcinogens. If you were there on 9/11 or in the months that followed, you may qualify for compensation.

Group of 9/11 survivors telling their stories

We worked, lived, and went to school in the exposure zone on or after 9/11. We all qualify.

I thought the Victim Compensation Fund and the health program were geared for firefighters and police officers, but I’m one of the victims, too. I’m happy I chose Barasch & McGarry to help me get a fair award for my illness and lost income.
