WTC Settlement Deadline Extended
August 26, 2010
The deadline for 9/11 rescue and recovery workers to accept the WTC Captive Insurance Company’s settlement has been extended two months, to November 8, 2010. To date, more than 50% of claimants have agreed to the settlement.
In addition, the James L. Zadroga 9/11 Health and Compensation Act has been amended so that those who accept the settlement will still be eligible for federal compensation, should Congress approve the legislation.
