VCF Policies and Procedures

This resources below outline the policies and procedures of the September 11th Victim Compensation Fund (“VCF”). The pages include information on eligibility criteria, the methodology used to calculate economic and non-economic loss, payment procedures, appeals and hearings, claims for deceased individuals, and information for claimants who are represented by an attorney for their claim.

These resources are intended to be used as a reference by individuals who are filing a claim, or by those who are interested in how the VCF operates.

    Note:  The PDF version of the Policies and Procedures document also housed "Section 8: Appendix."  Since this version is now online, we have instead linked directly to the appropriate resources directly on our site.  As a result, we no longer require the Appendix and it has been removed.
