Port Authority Tentatively Agrees to
$47.5 Million WTC Settlement
October 15, 2010

The Port Authority of New York and New Jersey tentatively agreed to pay $47.5 million to rescue and recovery workers who claimed illnesses due to 9/11. The settlement, which needs approval by the Port Authority board, is only for those who sued the agency. It is separate from a $712.5 million settlement announced in June with the WTC Captive Insurance Company.

Like the WTC Captive Insurance settlement, the Port Authority settlement requires the participation of 80% to 95% of plaintiffs. Under both offers, plaintiffs can choose to accept or reject the proposal.
