Never Forget The Heroes Act passes

We Lobbied Congress

Barasch & McGarry was proud to join forces with 9/11 advocates, including comedian Jon Stewart, to successfully lobby Congress for the Permanent Authorization of the September 11th Victim Compensation Fund (VCF).

  • The VCF has been extended to 2092. Claimants may file new or amended claims up until then.
  • The VCF is required to pay claimants the full amount of their award. Those claimants whose awards were cut by the Special Master because of insufficient funding (after February, 2019) will be made whole.
  • The bill was passed in the House on July 12, 2019 (H.R.1327), and the Senate on July 23, 2019 (S.546).

Don’t Wait:

You May Qualify

Compensation is available to anyone who has become sick or died from exposure to the toxins on 9/11. Lower Manhattan Office Workers, Residents, Teachers and Students – not just Responders and Volunteers, are all eligible. Check If You Qualify

I thought the Victim Compensation Fund and the health program were geared for firefighters and police officers, but I’m one of the victims, too. I’m happy I chose Barasch & McGarry to help me get a fair award for my illness and lost income.
