Rosasco Interviewed on FiOS1 About New 9/11 Victim Compensation Fund Opening and Registration

By Troy Rosasco


Carolyn Fortino, a reporter with Verizon FiOS Channel 1, came to my office yesterday to interview me on the opening of the new Zadroga Act 9/11 Victim Compensation FundSee the complete TV segment here.

We discussed the background of the 9/11 Victim Compensation Fund and how claimant's can only "register" with the Fund at this time.  According to Special Master Sheila Birnbaum,  actual claim forms for "compensation" are not expected until the end of November, meaning that the actual filing of compensation claims may not start until December at the earliest. 

In addition to our discussion, Ms. Fortino interviewed my good friend and 9/11 survivor, Jack Delaney.  Jack was Director of Emergency Medical Services for New York Presbyterian Hospital and responded so quickly to the World Trade Center that he was caught in the rubble when the buildings collapsed.  (Read Jack Delaney's incredible story of 9/11 and it's aftermath here).

Anyone who reads such a story, yet fails to see the justification for the 9/11 Victim Compensation Fund, should have their head examined.

People like Jack, who will never tell you the full extent of their injuries, are the ones most deserving of benefits under the Zadroga Act, and the ones we will be fighting for.
