September Deadlines Near for WTC Workers' Compensation, Disability
Two important deadlines are approaching in September for workers who have
9/11-related health problems or who may develop them in the future.
Workers' Compensation Deadline: September 13, 2010
WTC rescue, recovery and clean up workers and volunteers have
until September 13, 2010 to register with the New York State Workers' Compensation Board.
Registering will preserve their right to file for 9/11-related compensation in
the future even if they are not sick now.
Eligible city and state employees have until September 11, 2010 to file a
WTC-related Notice of Participation with their retirement system. The WTC Disability
Law provides a disability retirement benefit to eligible city and state
employees who become disabled from participating in the WTC rescue, recovery and
clean-up operations between September 11, 2001, and September 12,
