VCF FAQ

2.2 What is registration? How do I register with the VCF and what is my registration deadline?

July 30, 2021

Registration is the first step in the claim filing process and it simply preserves your right to file a claim in the future.  You do not waive any legal rights when you register, and registering does not obligate you to file a claim.  Registration serves only to alert the VCF that you may be a potential claimant; and it meets the legal requirement of timeliness set forth in the law.  Registration Deadlines vary based on claim type and individual circumstances. 

VCF FAQ

2.2 ¿Qué es el registro? ¿Cómo registro mi reclamo con el VCF y cuál es la fecha límite para registrarme?

July 30, 2021

Registrase es el primer paso en el proceso de presentar un reclamo y lo que hace es que le reserva el derecho a presentar un reclamo en el futuro. Usted no renuncia a ningún derecho legal cuando usted se registra, y el registrase no le obliga a presentar un reclamo en el futuro. El registrase únicamente sirve para alertar al VCF de que usted puede ser un potencial reclamante; y así se cumplen los requisitos legales de fechas límites que establece la ley. Los Plazos para Registrarse varían a base de sus circunstancias individuales.

VCF FAQ

2.2 Co to jest rejestracja? Jak mogę zarejestrować się w Funduszu VCF i jaki jest mój termin rejestracji? (Aktualizacja: 30 lipca 2021 r.)

July 30, 2021

Rejestracja to pierwszy etap złożenia wniosku i po prostu zachowuje Państwa prawo do złożenia wniosku w przyszłości. Podczas rejestracji nie zrzekają się Państwo żadnych praw i rejestracja nie obliguje do złożenia wniosku.  Rejestracja tylko powiadamia Fundusz VCF, że mogą być Państwo potencjalnymi wnioskodawcami i umożliwia spełnienie prawnego wymogu terminowości określonego w prawie. Terminy Rejestracji są różne w zależności od okoliczności indywidualnych.

VCF FAQ

2.2 什么是注册?如何向VCF注册,我的注册截止日期是什么? (更新日期:2021年7月30日)

July 30, 2021

注册是提交索赔流程中的第一步,它仅保留了您将来提交索赔的权利。注册后您不会放弃任何合法权利,注册也没有义务让您提交索赔。注册仅用于提醒VCF您可能是潜在的索赔人;并且符合法律规定的对及时性的法律要求。注册截止日期因索赔类型和个人情况而不同。

尽管注册并没有义务让您将来提交索赔,但是若您的确提交了索赔,则必须在适用的注册截止日期之前已向VCF注册,才能有获得赔偿的资格。因此,即使您现在没有生病或尚未被诊断出患有与9/11有关的疾病或尚未获得WTC健康项目的认证,我们也鼓励大家现在就进行注册。这样,如果您将来生病的话,就不必担心注册的问题。

该逐项指南介绍了在VCF如何注册。您可以使用在线系统进行注册,也可以通过致电VCF求助热线1-855-885-1555通过电话进行注册。
