Cancer Deadline Update

Clarification of Victim Compensation Fund Deadlines

Deadline to register claims with the Victim Compensation Fund is 2 years from date of Governmental certification

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 2 years from the date that a cancer has been certified by the WTC Health Program —or any other governmental agency. The 2 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 2 year period for their family to register starts on the day of their death.

Please help spread the word about the strict 2 year deadline to register a claim

Many people have tried to complete the VCF application on their own, only to learn that it requires answers to hundreds of questions and many documents to download. It would be our pleasure to help you complete the process in order to ensure that you receive the compensation that you are entitled to. Please call us for a free consultation.

For a complete list of all 9/11-related cancers, including specific deadlines, please visit the VCF’s website at https://www.vcf.gov/pdf/CancerlistingFinal.pdf.

The attorneys at Barasch & McGarry are dedicated to helping you register with the Victim Compensation Fund and fighting to make sure that you get the justice that you deserve. There are hundreds of questions to answer on the VCF application. The VCF requires documentation to prove that you were at the WTC site and that your illness is certified as a WTC condition. We promise to be with you every step of the way.
