Have You Suffered Injuries from the 9/11 Attacks?

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

What You Need To Know

In July 2019, President Donald Trump signed into law an extension of the September 11th Victims Compensation Fund, allowing victims to file 9/11-related injury claims through 2092.

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


If you meet all of the following criteria, you may be eligible to file a claim via the September 11th Victims Compensation Fund:

  • You worked, lived, or attended school in Manhattan, New York, south of Canal Street from September 11, 2001 through June 30, 2002.
  • You developed any form of cancer or respiratory illness between 2014 and 2020.

Parties who suffered injury or illness may include:

  • First responders (police officers, firefighters, EMTs, etc.)
  • Ground Zero volunteers and rescue workers
  • Cleanup personnel
  • Residents of Manhattan, New York, who lived south of Canal Street
  • Students who attended a school in Manhattan, south of Canal Street
  • Anyone who worked in Manhattan, south of Canal Street


Filing a claim through such a large compensation fund is complicated, and that complexity can result in errors that may lead to an unjustified rejection or delay. An attorney can help applicants navigate the claim process, potentially boosting the chances of recovering the compensation a survivor needs to treat their illness and take care of their family.

A good attorney will collect evidence, file paperwork, and ensure that all eligibility requirements are fulfilled so that the injured party can receive full and fair compensation.
