Notice Of Inquiry And Determination Of Funding Insufficiency

On October 3, 2018, the VCF published in the Federal Register a Notice of Inquiry as part of the Special Master’s statutory obligation to periodically reassess the VCF’s policies and procedures for two purposes: to make sure that (1) we prioritize claims for individuals who suffer from the most debilitating physical conditions, and; (2) we do not exceed the $7.375 billion in funds appropriated to the VCF. The publication was prompted by an August 2018 projections analysis that suggested the possibility that, following current policies and procedures, the VCF might exceed its available funding prior to the designated program end on December 18, 2020.

  • 使用在线系统提交您的《注册表格》。 
  • 拨打 1-855-885-1555 VCF 求助热线进行电话注册。 

如果在《永不忘记英雄们,詹姆斯·扎德罗加,雷·菲佛和路易斯·阿尔瓦雷斯 9/11 受害者 赔偿基金永久授权法案》2019 年 7 月 29 日颁布之日起两年内进行注册,VCF 将认为索赔提交 都及时。该法案延长了 VCF 索赔提交期限。这意味着每个已经在 VCF 注册的索赔都是及时的, 并且所有在 2021 年 7 月 29 日之前注册的索赔都将是及时的。在 2021 年 7 月 29 日之后登记的 索赔,根据个别情况,可能是及时的。
