Question
6.4 Are disability payments from other sources (such as Veterans Affairs, NYCERs, etc.) deducted from my award? (Added: November 10, 2016)
Answer

Yes, if the payments are related to your disability from an eligible 9/11-related condition. The statute requires that the VCF offset from your award any disability benefits you are receiving, or entitled to receive, related to your eligible physical conditions. If you are receiving disability payments for conditions that are not eligible under the VCF, those amounts will not be deducted from your award.
