You may have heard about a July 29, 2021, deadline for September 11th Victim Compensation Fund (VCF) registration. LHI/NPN is assisting the VCF with sharing the information below and attached on this important registration deadline. Please note: The VCF is a separate program from the WTC Health Program and is administered by the U.S. Department of Justice. All VCF-related information attached was provided by the VCF. Visit the VCF website or call the VCF Helpline at 1-855-885-1555 for all VCF questions. Below is a quick synopsis of the VCF’s July 29, 2021, registration deadline. Registration with the VCF is separate from enrollment in the WTC Health Program. VCF registration preserves your right to file a VCF claim in the future. Additional detailed information can be found at https://www.vcf.gov/deadlines. The July 29, 2021, registration deadline applies only to those WTC Health Program members who meet the following criteria:

  1. You were certified by the WTC Health Program for a 9/11-related physical health condition on or before July 29, 2019, and you have not yet registered with the VCF.

  2. You are registering to file a claim for an individual who you believe died of a 9/11-related physical health condition on or before July 29, 2019, and the individual or his/her representative has not already registered with the VCF.

The July 29, 2021, deadline provides an opportunity for claimants who missed their prior deadlines to register. If you are certified with a WTC-related health condition in the future, you must register within two years of your certification date. Registration with the VCF is simple. You may register online at www.claims.vcf.gov or by calling the VCF’s Toll-free Helpline at 1-855-885-1555. If you are unsure of your VCF registration status, the Helpline can assist you. More information is available on the VCF website at www.vcf.gov. This deadline does not affect any of the medical care you are receiving now or will be receiving from the WTC Health Program.
