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.
