9/11 compensation board registration ends Thursday

By Amber Jamieson New York Post

If 9/11 responders and volunteers don’t register with the workers’ compensation board by Thursday — the 13th anniversary of the terror attacks — they lose the right to file claims for illnesses caused by work at the toxic World Trade Center site.

“This does not mean you are injured or ill now. But it does preserve your ability to file a claim later if you should become ill in the future,” Rep. Jerrold Nadler (D-Manhattan) said Friday.

Anyone — from contracted janitors to local residents — who helped clean up Ground Zero or the neighboring area is eligible to file a WTC-12 form with the workers’ compensation board.
