9/11 Workers Have One Week Left To Register
Sept. 11 marks the 13th anniversary of the attacks on the World Trade Center — and the last chance for 9/11 workers to register with the New York State Worker Compensation Board. After this Thursday at 5 p.m., those who haven’t filled out, notarized and filed a WTC-12 form won’t be able to claim benefits for long-term health complications.
Standing on the steps of City Hall on Friday morning, state officials said 41,000 have registered so far. “If anyone is in any doubt, they should register,” said Rep. Jerry Nadler, who represents the district surrounding Ground Zero.
