Claim Review Assessor

The September 11th Victim Compensation Fund ("VCF") was created to provide compensation for any individual or personal representative of a deceased individual who suffered physical harm or was killed as a result of the terrorist-related aircraft crashes of September 11, 2001 or the debris removal efforts that took place in the immediate aftermath of those crashes.  The original VCF operated from 2001-2004.  In 2011, the James Zadroga 9/11 Health and Compensation Act of 2010 was signed into law and reactivated the September 11th Victim Compensation Fund in October 2011.  In July 2019, the Fund was reauthorized permanently.  More information about the VCF can be found at
