There are two important deadlines The applicable deadline is the date by which the required forms must be submitted/uploaded to your online claim or postmarked (if sending by mail). If the date falls on a Sunday or a Federal Government holiday, the forms must be submitted/uploaded or postmarked by the next business day. for each claim.

  1. The first deadline is the date by which you must register your claim with the Victim Compensation Fund. This date is different for each claimant and depends on individual circumstances, most importantly the Registration Start Date. The Registration Start Date is defined as the date on which the claimant knew or reasonably should have known: (1) that the victim suffered physical harm as a result of the terrorist-related aircraft crashes of September 11, 2001, or debris removal in the immediate aftermath, and (2) that the claimant was eligible to file a claim with the VCF. Prior to the newly announced deadlines, the VCF declared the start date of the two-year deadline to register for 9/11 victim compensation as the date on which an illness or condition was first diagnosed. The below chart lists the deadlines that correspond to the claimant’s individual Registration Start Date.
  2. The second deadline is the date by which you must fully file your completed forms and all required supporting documents. This date is the same for all claimants: December 18, 2020.
