Two groups of eligible 9/11 survivors, families face deadline to register with Victim Compensation Fund

Families of 9/11 survivors who died before July 29, 2019, due to an illness resulting from their exposure to toxins at Ground Zero, as well as those living survivors or first responders who have been diagnosed with an illness related to the attack and have been certified by the World Trade Center Health Program (WTCHP), must register with the VCF before midnight on Thursday.

“We’re really imploring everyone to file as soon as possible to basically make sure you don’t miss out on the compensation that the government is providing,” Andrew Ansbro, who represents more than 20,000 active and retired firefighters as president of the New York City Fire Department (FDNY), told Fox News.
