Have You Suffered Injuries from the 9/11 Disaster?

9/11 survivors diagnosed with cancer or respiratory illnesses may be eligible for compensation under the 9/11 Victims Compensation Fund.

What You Need To Know

On December 18, 2015, Congress voted to extend the deadline for the 9/11 Victims Compensation Fund. The new deadline allows victims to file injury claims until December 18, 2020.

The 9/11 Victims Compensation Fund can provide compensation to survivors for medical bills, lost wages, and pain and suffering for the injuries they suffered as a result of the attacks. These can include respiratory illnesses and any form of cancer, both of which have been connected to the toxic dust released from the collapsed towers.


If you meet each of the following criteria, you may be eligible to file a claim with the 9/11 Victims Compensation Fund:

  • You worked, lived, or attended school south of Manhattan’s Canal Street from September 11, 2001 through May 2002.
  • You developed any form of respiratory illness or cancer from 2014 through 2020.

These parties might include:

  • First responders (police, firefighters, etc.)
  • Ground Zero volunteers and rescue workers
  • Cleanup personnel
  • New Yorkers who lived south of Manhattan’s Canal Street
  • Students who attended school south of Canal Street
  • Anyone who worked south of Canal Street


When you obtain legal representation to file a claim with the 9/11 Victims Compensation Fund, you can rest assured that you have an advocate who will not only manage every step of the process, from collecting evidence to filling out paperwork, but one who will do so with an expert eye for eligibility requirements.  

Attorneys can ensure you receive every benefit you are eligible for so that you recover the maximum amount possible for your suffering.
