The Zadroga Health & Compensation Act provides health care and compensation not just for the first responders such as the firefighters, police officers and EMT’s. Downtown residents and office workers are also eligible. In addition, all construction workers who participated in the recovery operation are eligible for health care and compensation. This includes iron workers, laborers, operating engineers, carpenters, electricians, sanitation workers, correction officers, Verizon and Con Ed workers.
The Government has set aside more than $10 Billion for construction workers and first responders, as well as local residents and office workers who lived or worked south of Canal Street from 9/11/01 to 5/30/02. All are eligible for free medical care and compensation.
