It can take several months for your 9/11 Victim Compensation Fund claim to be reviewed
Each 9/11 Victim Compensation Fund claim is unique, and there are many variables that can affect the review time, including the need to contact third parties to collect or confirm information, the number of supporting documents submitted with the claim, and potentially special circumstances that require additional review by the Special Master or consultation with outside experts. Consequently, there is no set timeframe for review. Once the board has the information it needs, it will work as quickly as possible to review your claim.
If you are working with a toxic exposure attorney, the best way to get updated information about your claim is to call them. Your attorney is in the best position to let you know exactly what has been submitted to the 9/11 Victim Compensation Fund and when it was submitted and can update you on any requests the board has made for additional information. If you want to be kept informed of the requests made by the Victim Compensation Fund to your attorney, you can talk with them about requesting that the board send you a copy of any letters it mails to your attorney about your claim.
