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 email@example.com.

The annual Remember Me Run at St. Michael’s Cemetery will be held at 2:00pm on Saturday, September 7, 2013.
A project of the Christopher A. Santora Scholarship Fund, the Remember Me Run helps the children of rescue and recovery workers who have died of illnesses contracted from searching for survivors and human remains in the wreckage of the World Trade Center after the terrorist attacks of 2001. More than 1,000 recovery workers have died of these illnesses and many more are sick.
Registration begins at 10:00am. The fee to run is $25.00 for adults; children 10 and under run for free. Please make any checks payable to the Christopher Santora Educational Scholarship Fund with Remember Me Run in the memo section. Refreshments will be provided after the run.
The run ends at the beautiful September 11th Memorial at St. Michael’s Cemetery.
