$165 Million Collected For Our WTC Clients To Date
Aggressive, compassionate and experienced attorneys representing
those with illnesses from the September 11th attacks.
A year after the Reauthorization of the Zadroga Act was published, the Fund has paid full compensation to more than 9,000 Group A claimants and nearly 2,500 Group B claimants totaling nearly $2.27 billion (including more than 800 of the oldest claims submitted).
The Fifth Annual Statistics Report shows that as of December 31, 2016, more than 3,200 compensation claims that have already been found eligible are currently under review for an award. Another 2,700 are awaiting eligibility decisions before beginning compensation review.
Nearly 2,500 claims were submitted for compensation in 2015 or earlier, and have not received a decision. The Fund has committed to prioritizing this group of claims.
We appreciate the Fund's efforts to expedite their review process, and we hope to see significant progress in the coming year so that claimants receive the compensation that they deserve.
