Important Information on the October 12, 2014 VCF Registration Deadline


The September 11th Victim Compensation Fund is approaching an important deadline. This deadline applies to individuals who were diagnosed with a 9/11-related eligible cancer other than Prostate Cancer on or before October 12, 2012 and who have not already registered or filed a VCF claim.

Claimants diagnosed on or before October 12, 2012 with one of the cancers added to the list of eligible conditions on that date must register with the Fund by October 12, 2014.

Registration preserves your right to file a claim in the future (before the VCF ends on October 3, 2016). Registration is not the same as filing a claim and you are not required to file a claim even if you have registered. Click here for detailed information on filing deadlines. Frequently Asked Questions (FAQs) about registration and filing deadlines can be found here.
