URGENT: 9/11/22 Disability and Workers’ Compensation Deadline for Responders and Volunteers

NOTE: This is unrelated to the September 11th Victim Compensation Fund which does not have a 9/11/22 deadline.

If you were a New York State or New York City employee between 9/11/01 and 9/11/02, and worked in a responder capacity to the 9/11 attacks, then you must file an applicable notice of participation by September 11, 2022 to protect your WTC presumption for workers’ compensation, disability pension, and death benefits.
