NYS Senate Extends Workers’ Compensation For 9/11 Rescue Workers

Local News

The New York State Senate announced yesterday the passing of a law to preserve benefits for heroes who sacrificed their health and well-being during the September 11th terrorist attacks.

The legislation extends the ability for participants injured in World Trade Center rescue, recovery, or clean-up operations to claim workers’ compensation benefits.

Initially, individuals who participated had until September 11, 2010, to file the required notice of participation and become eligible for compensation.

This is now the third extension of the deadline to enable fair treatment of those who are still getting diagnosed and coping with WTC-related illnesses.
