Are there deadlines?
Yes. You must register within two (2) years of the date of death or being certified by the World Trade Center Health Program as having a 9/11 injury or illness. To obtain benefits, a victim (or the victim’s attorney) completes an application which sets forth why the victim was present in the Exposure Zone for the relevant time period; what injuries or illnesses the victim has and proof of the victim’s presence in the Exposure Zone. The Fund is working on many thousands of applications and so its review is relatively lengthy. The Fund usually takes over a year to review an application once submitted.
