There are two deadlines in the claim filing process – the first is the Registration Deadline and the second is the 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 Deadline varies according to individual circumstances.  To understand what is applicable to your situation, please see detailed information about the VCF’s Registration Deadlines.
