There are two deadlines associated with filing a VCF Claim: A Registration Deadline and a Claim Filing Deadline. The Claim Filing Deadline is the same for everyone: October 1, 2090.
Registration is not the same as filing a claim and the Registration Deadline is not the same for everyone. It varies according to individual circumstances:
You are only required to register with the VCF by July 29, 2021, if you meet the following circumstances:
- You were certified by the World Trade Center (“WTC”) Health Program for a 9/11-related physical health condition before July 29, 2019; or
- You are registering to file a claim for an individual who you believe died of a 9/11-related physical health condition before July 29, 2019.
Individuals in other circumstances have different Registration Deadlines. To understand what is applicable to your situation, please see detailed information about the VCF’s Registration Deadlines.
