The website is designed to make the September 11th Victim Compensation Fund ("VCF") transparent and easy to navigate. You are able to:

  • File a claim with the VCF;
  • Access information about our policies and guidelines;
  • Obtain access to our forms and a list of resources to help you complete and submit your claim; and
  • Review newly updated Frequently Asked Questions.


    • New VCF Overview presentation posted. This document is intended to be used as a reference by individuals who are filing a claim with the VCF, or by those who are interested in how the VCF operates.

    • We have updated our FAQs based on feedback from our Helpline, questions we receive from callers, and questions from law firms. These updates are intended to make our answers more clear and easy to understand. We have also added question 7.8 “I submitted my Private Physician forms (either in hard copy or as part of the online claim form) and now realize I do not meet the criteria for the Private Physician process. What should I do next?”

    • The VCF works with a number of other 9/11-related organizations to support outreach and share information. We are pleased to launch a new page which will highlight these resources, as well as upcoming events where the VCF is participating. You can view the new “Upcoming Events, Outreach Materials, and 9/11 Resources” page for full details.

    • Updated Policy and Procedures document posted.



    As directed by the regulations, the listing of claimants and deceased individuals includes the names of those who have either filed a claim for a deceased individual or amended a personal injury claim to notify the VCF that the victim is deceased. The listing includes the claimant's name along with the deceased individual's name.
