Victim Compensation Fund

Will the VCF Expire or Run Out of Money?

April 30, 2020 | Lila Nordstrom

For years we’ve heard that the Victim Compensation Fund will eventually run out of money. Many people with minor illnesses chose not to file claims because they didn’t want to take money from those who were sicker or “deserved it more.” Now that the VCF has been fully funded and permanently extended, that is no longer the case! Congress has passed an extension that fully funds the VCF until 2090, making it essentially permanent.

Back in 2015, the World Trade Center Health Program was also extended to 2090, so both programs that serve 9/11 responders and survivors will likely be available for the rest of everyone’s life.

Find out how to sign up for the WTC Health Program and file a VCF claim now. You are welcome to call us and we will help you register for both programs.
