9/11 Medical and Mental Health Services
Claims applications are now being accepted by the September 11th Victim Compensation Fund (VCF), and free medical and mental health services are still available for workers affected by the 9/11 World Trade Center attack.
September 11th Victim Compensation Fund Claims
The September 11th Victim Compensation Fund (VCF) is now accepting claims applications on its website, http://www.vcf.gov/. Claimants who have registered for the fund can fill out an online eligibility form that will be used to determine whether they are eligible for compensation through the VCF. Claimants who are found eligible will be invited to complete the compensation form, which will be used to determine the amount of compensation they are owed. Although paper forms will be made available to those without Internet access, claimants are encouraged to use the online system. Individuals who wish to visit the VCF’s site, learn more about the eligibility criteria, or receive future communications regarding the VCF should visit http://www.vcf.gov/ or call 1-888-982-4748.
