9/11 workers fund gets another manager to oversee 75 employees amid slow dole frustration

By Joseph Straw New York Daily News

WASHINGTON — The 9/11 Victim Compensation Fund is beefing up management amid frustration with the slow pace of award rulings for sick workers and their families.

The $2.8 billion fund said Thursday that it had set award amounts for 502 claims out of 6,702 complete submissions, with more than 20,000 people believed eligible.

A third manager will now oversee roughly 75 fund employees. New Deputy Special Master Nell McCarthy is a lawyer and former senior White House official.
