911 (VCF) Victims Compensation Fund DEADLINE now July 29, 2021

911 Victims Compensation Fund (VCF) - Corey Lee Law

On July 29, 2019, the September 11th Victim Compensation Fund Act (“VCF Permanent Authorization Act”) was signed into law. Now, any claim filed prior to July 29, 2021 will be considered timely.

 

The September 11th Victim Compensation Fund was created to compensate people who suffered as a first responder or who lived, worked, or went to school south of Canal Street in Manhattan New York in the months after the September 11th terrorist attack in 2001, and were affected by the removal of toxic debris. Now it also includes other areas in New York that were in the path of debris removal such as barges and Fresh Kill landfill on Staten Island.

 

Previously, the Victim’s Compensation Fund mostly compensated pulmonary (lung) diseases such as asthma and sleep apnea and gastric (stomach) diseases such as GERD. The VCF Permanent Authorization Act now expands the eligible injuries, including most cancers.

 

The following cancers now qualify for the highest compensation under the VCF Permanent Authorization Act:

-Blood Cancers such as Lymphoma and Leukemia

-Female Breast and Reproductive Cancers

-Male Reproductive Cancers

-Digestive Cancers such as of the Colon, Esophagus, Liver, Stomach, Rectum

-Cancers of the Eye, Mouth, Neck, Head

-Rare Cancers (defined as less than 15 cases per 100,000 persons per year)

-Thyroid Cancers

-Bone Cancers

-Certain Tumors

-Skin Cancer

-Urinary System Cancers

 

 

At C.T. Lee & Associates we are proud to have helped nearly 100 victims affected by the toxic debris from the 911 terrorist attacks. Given our language capabilities in Mandarin, Cantonese, Taishanese, and Fujianese (all dialects of the Chinese language), we were able to help a large population in the New York Manhattan Chinatown area.

 

However, many people in the community who lived, worked or went to school in lower Manhattan south of Canal street the months after September 11, 2001 are still unaware that they qualify for compensation.

 

Many people are still unaware that if their loved one already passed he or she can still qualify for compensation if they have the documents to prove both physical presence in the months after September 11, 2001 and that the person passed of a qualifying disease such as cancer.
