9/11 responders last call to register for workers’ comp by Friday

9/11 first responders and volunteers are reminded that the last day of the registration for filing for workers’ compensation benefits is on Thursday, September 11 – the 13th anniversary of the attack on the World Trade Center.

The New York State Workers’ Compensation Board is encouraging thousands of eligible individuals to register before the 12th via its Tell Us You Were There campaign.

According to the Board’s website, applicants should make it clear what they were doing to respond in the aftermath of the attack, whether they were working at Ground Zero, the morgues, Fresh Kills Landfill, the barges, or the piers nearby.

Should you need assistance regarding this matter, you are advised to call 1-855-WTC-2014 or 1-855-982-2014.
