9/11 Benefits Through the World Trade Center Health Program

9/11 Benefits Through the World Trade Center Health Program

September 11, 2020

For NYCDCC members who were at Ground Zero and are in search of assistance, the Benefit Funds would like to offer you information regarding the World Trade Center (“WTC”) Health Program.

The WTC Health Program provides medical monitoring and treatment for emergency responders, recovery, and cleanup workers, and volunteers who helped after the terrorist attacks on September 11, 2001, at the World Trade Center, the Pentagon, and the crash site near Shanksville, Pennsylvania.

The WTC Health Program also provides health evaluations and treatment for eligible people who were present in the dust or dust cloud on 9/11 or who worked, resided, or attended school, childcare, or adult daycare in the New York City disaster area for a period of time on 9/11 and/or during the following months.

In addition to providing medical monitoring and treatment, the WTC Health Program also provides:

  • Education and outreach to people who may be eligible;
  • Collection and analysis of physical and mental health data with members’ permission; and
  • Research to better understand health conditions related to the attacks.
