A Message from the Special Master

February 12, 2024

I was very proud to step into the role of Special Master in March 2023, particularly as a native New Yorker and someone who was raised to respect and value public service. In the months since, I have been struck by many things that I hadn’t fully anticipated – chief among them the need to inform the public about the VCF and to ensure that every person who might be eligible for a VCF award is aware of the program and has the resources and support they need to register and file a claim.

VCF 2023 Annual Report

February 12, 2024

This report summarizes the VCF’s 12th year of operation, and focuses on the significant changes, challenges, and achievements of 2023. With the appointment of permanent Special Master Allison Turkel in March, the VCF began a new era of leadership, continuing to focus on the needs of the 9/11 community and building the tools to support the program’s longevity. The Fund hit new milestones, awarding $12.8 billion to over 56,600 claimants since re-opening in October 2011. In addition, in 2023 the VCF decided more claims and issued more award dollars than in any previous year.

VCF FAQ

1.2 我提出了我的索赔。何时将对我的索赔作出裁决?

February 5, 2024

一般情况下,我们将根据提交《索赔表》的日期以“先进先出”的顺序审核索赔。这意味着VCF会优先处理那些等待了较长时间的索赔,然后才开始审核较新提交的索赔。只有在所有的必需的信息提交后,索赔才会被优先审核。

VCF继续努力缩短对索赔做出裁决所需的时间,并且正在努力在提交《索赔表》或修改后的一年内做出裁决(假定已提交了处理索赔所需的全部信息)。

下面的索赔审核时间线图表反映了最新的审核索赔的状态。该时间线图的日期仅适用于有序提交的索赔, 也就是说,索赔申请拥有VCF 用以确定索赔人资格和计算赔偿金 所需的必要文件。由于未同所需文件一起提交而处于待用或搁置的索赔需要更长的时间进行审查,并不反映在该时间线图中。

VCF FAQ

1.2 Złożyłem/am wniosek. Kiedy zostanie podjęta decyzja w mojej sprawie?

February 5, 2024

Na ogół wnioski są rozpatrywane w kolejności napływania – na podstawie daty złożenia formularza wniosku. Oznacza to, że wnioski oczekujące na rozpatrzenie dłużej mają pierwszeństwo przed wnioskami nowymi. Wnioski zostają przedłożone do rozpatrzenia w pierwszej kolejności tylko wtedy, kiedy załączono do nich wszystkie wymagane informacje.

VCF FAQ

1.2 I filed my claim. When will a decision be made on my claim?

February 5, 2024

As a general rule, claims are reviewed in “first in, first out” order based on the date the Claim Form was submitted. This means the VCF prioritizes claims that have been waiting longer before beginning review of newer submissions. Claims are prioritized for review only after all required information has been submitted.

The VCF continues to work to shorten the timeframe needed to decide a claim and is working towards issuing determinations within one year of submission of the claim form or amendment (assuming all information needed to process the claim has been submitted).

VCF FAQ

1.2 Ya presenté mi reclamo. ¿Cuándo se decidirá?

February 5, 2024

Como regla general, los reclamos se revisan por orden de llegada, siguiendo el orden de la fecha en que se presentó el formulario de reclamo de compensación. Esto significa que el VCF prioriza los reclamos que han estado en espera por más tiempo antes de comenzar a revisar los reclamos más recientes. Los reclamos se priorizan para revisión sólo cuando toda la información requerida ha sido presentada.

VCF FAQ

6.3 我什么时候可望收到赔款,赔款会按比例支付吗?

October 13, 2023

VCF不按比例支付赔款。您的索赔将按处理赔付时所计算出的损失金额全额赔付。

给您的裁决函将包括处理给您的赔款的预计时间。 VCF 将在裁决函发出后一个工作日内开始处理给您的赔款。

VCF开始处理赔款事宜后,特别监督官最长可能需要20天的时间授权该赔款。-然后将由司法部和财政部处理这笔赔款,这最长可能需要三个星期。这就意味着给您的赔款应在您收到裁决函之日起的两个月内发放到您所指定的银行账户。这是一个大致的估计,给您的赔款可能会得到更快的处理。

VCF FAQ

6.1 如果自上次赔款以来,我的银行帐户或地址已变更,怎么办?

October 13, 2023

如果您已从VCF收到至少一笔赔款,并且您的银行信息自处理上次赔款以来已变更,您必须尽快填写一份新的《ACH支付信息表》并上传至您的线上索赔。您上传新的ACH表格时,应该附上一封信以说明该新表格应该代替当前与您的索赔相关的银行信息。如果您的地址已变更,请拨打求助热线 1-855-885-1555 以协助更新您在VCF的记录。
