    Two Federal Benefit Programs
    for Those Affected by September 11th

    After the 9/11 attacks, the federal government reassured us that the air in our communities was safe to breathe. We know now that this was not true. The citizens of New York City and others from around the country who came to help have suffered high rates of cancer and other health conditions in the years since the World Trade Center collapse.

    In 2010, Congress passed the Zadroga Act to provide free healthcare and financial compensation for those who suffer from 9/11-related health conditions. The Zadroga Act created two distinct programs with different purposes, budgets, and eligibility criteria.

    Victim Compensation Fund (9/11 VCF)

    Financial compensation for specific types of loss

    Covers physical injuries and illnesses only (no PTSD)

    More restrictive eligibility criteria

    Filing deadline is October 1, 2090

    Registration deadlines depend on individual circumstances

    Fully funded until 2090

    LEARN MORE

    World Trade Center Health Program (WTCHP)

    Free medical monitoring, treatment, and medication

    Both psychological and physical illnesses are covered

    Less restrictive eligibility requirements

    Larger exposure zone

    Fully funded until 2090
