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
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
