DEADLINE: JUST 60 DAYS LEFT FOR ACTIVE AND RETIRED 9/11 CONSTRUCTION WORKERS AND FIRST RESPONDERS WITH PROSTATE CANCER TO REGISTER FOR COMPENSATION

Please be aware that there is a critical deadline for all construction workers and first responders who worked at the WTC site. Anyone diagnosed with PROSTATE CANCER between September 11, 2005 and Sept. 11, 2013 must register with the Victim Compensation Fund (VCF) by October 21, 2015.

In fact, anyone with a certified World Trade Center illness who spent time at the following sites is eligible for health care and compensation under the Zadroga Health and Compensation Act: Ground Zero, the Fresh Kills Landfill, the Morgue, aboard any of the transport vehicles, and residents and office workers south of Canal Street. The Zadroga Act, which Congress passed into law in 2011, established the VCF, which has now given awards in excess of $1 Billion to claimants whose illnesses have been linked to the WTC dust.

The WTC Health Program has linked 68 cancers to the WTC toxic dust. There is a presumption that if you have been diagnosed with one of those cancers, it was due to your exposure. You should also know that cancers diagnosed after 9/11/13, including prostate cancer, must be registered within two years of the date of the diagnosis.

Please help spread the word. Don’t let anyone you know with WTC-prostate cancer miss the October 21, 2015 deadline. If you have any questions, or need help with your claim, feel free to contact the law firm of Barasch & McGarry at (888) 351-9421. All consultations are free and confidential.

  • Deadline Extended to Register for Compensation


    There is still time to apply for significant compensation if you have been diagnosed with any of the 68 cancers that doctors at the WTC Health Program (WTCHP) have linked to the WTC toxic dust. The deadline to apply to the Victim Compensation Fund (VCF) is two years from the date that a cancer has been certified by the WTC Health Program — or any other governmental agency. The two-year period to register doesn’t start on the day of a cancer diagnosis. Rather, it starts only when a cancer survivor is made aware their cancer was linked to exposure to the WTC toxins.

    For those who died from their WTC-linked cancers, the two-year period for their family to register starts on the day of the death of the WTC victim.
