World Trade Center Victims Compensation Fund Awards

Published

on

The September 11th Victim Compensation Fund is a special fund that was established shortly after the coordinated terrorist attacks on our country on 9/11/2001. This fund was designed to provide aid and compensation to all of those who suffered harm, either physical or through the loss of a loved one in the tragic events of that day. Originally, the VCF operated between 2001 and 2004, but in 2011 President Obama signed the Zadroga Act, which reactivated the VCF through 2010. It was then reactivated for another five years through 2020.

If you are among those who were injured or who lost a loved one in the WTC attacks of 9/11, you can file a claim for compensation through the VCF. It’s important to understand, however, that some changes have gone into effect. Let’s review the World Trade Center Victim Compensation Fund awards, how they work, how you can file a claim and why you need help from an attorney.

Filing for World Trade Center Victim Compensation Fund awards

Filing a claim for World Trade Center Victim Compensation Fund (wtc vcf) awards is open, and the government has endeavored to streamline the process for filing. In the past, there were multiple forms needed to file a claim: Eligibility, Personal Injury, Compensation and Deceased claim forms. Now there is only a single, simplified form that covers all aspects.

In addition, there is only a single Claim Form Signature Page, which is a combination of the former multi-page Attestations and Certifications forms. A Document Checklist is also available to guide you through the supporting documentation you will need to provide.

Victims vs. Claimants

While completing the application, you’ll notice the terms “victim” and “claimant” used throughout. If you are filing for yourself, you are both victim and claimant. Otherwise, the victim is the injured party and the claimant is the person filing the claim.

Online vs. Paper Claim Forms

There are hard-copy forms of the application available—these are in PDF format; you download them, complete them on your computer and print them off then send them in. However, the government prefers that you file directly online. It’s faster and easier, and allows you to amend prior forms if need be. With this version, you simply create an account, complete your form, upload documents, and receive and respond to all of your correspondence online.

Why You Need an Attorney

While the process of filing your claims form is fairly straightforward, anyone considering filing for World Trade Center Victim Compensation Fund awards should secure the services of an experienced attorney who specializes in WTC VCF awards. Many applications are denied after review, and challenging these denials requires knowledgeable legal services.

Likewise, a WTC VCF attorney is your best bet at getting the maximum possible compensation for the injuries you’ve suffered. At Napoli Shkolnik, we’ve helped many people secure hundreds of millions in total settlements over the years. Many of our attorneys are dedicated specifically to helping victims of the 9/11 attacks, and we look forward to getting you the maximum possible compensation for your injuries. Just contact us today for a free consultation and learn how we can help you get the money you need and deserve for the harm and loss you’ve suffered.

The more you understand yourself, the more silence there is, the healthier you are. —Maxime Lagacé
