It can take anywhere from nine months to 1-2 years for the September 11th Victim Compensation Fund (“VCF”) to fully process a claim for compensation. The date submitted and the specific circumstances of each claim affect the processing time. Generally, claims are processed in a “first in, first out” order based on the date the claim was fully submitted. For those suffering from a terminal illness or financial ruin such as impending foreclosure or bankruptcy, there is a mechanism to request expedited claim review for such “exigent circumstances.” These exigent circumstances requests are approved sparingly and must be supported with ample proof of hardship.
