Registration is now open for the third annual National Conference on Work and Cancer.
This free conference explores the challenges working people face—job search, health insurance, legal issues, working through treatment, job re-entry and more—as they try to balance their cancer treatment and recovery with employment.
The conference takes place on Friday, June 14, 2013 at the Graduate Center at CUNY.

The deadline to register for a September 11th Victims’ Compensation Fund (Zadroga) claim for KNOWN symptoms, diagnoses and disabilities is October 2013.
The deadline to register for a September 11th Victims’ Compensation Fund claim for any NEW symptoms & diagnoses is October 2016.
There are THREE steps involved in making a claim: 1. You must register (this is easy). 2. You must establish eligibility and receive your claim number. 3. You must apply for compensation. The process is complex — 80% of claimants are using attorneys — but it is possible to register without an attorney.
When making any inquiry about your case, you must have your claim number. (Note: a claim number can also be called a “claimant identification number” or a “case number”.)
The website for the September 11th Victims’ Compensation Fund is here. For help from the Fund in making your claim, please call 855-885-1555 or email firstname.lastname@example.org.
