3 Months Remain for 9/11-Related Workers’ Compensation Program;
Out of at Least 100,000 Eligible, Fewer than 14,000 Have Registered
Time is running out for people to register to preserve the right to file for 9/11-related workers’ compensation.
Only three months remain until the final registration deadline of August 14, 2007.
At least 100,000 workers and volunteers who performed any rescue, recovery or cleanup work in the vicinity of the World Trade Center are eligible to register with the New York State Workers’ Compensation Board. But fewer than 14,000 have done so.
For an excellent indication of the importance of 9/11-related disease, see the front page of this morning's New York Times: "Ground Zero Illnesses Clouding Giuliani’s Legacy," For a compendium of articles concerning the national scope of the problem, see below.
