Families of September 11 is now operating as the For Action Initiative. The web pages on this site are available for informational purposes only. Please visit us at www.foractioninitiative.org.

May 31, 2006

The law provides for 250 weeks of continuous benefit which, in the case of claims beginning September 12, 2001 - ends on June 26, 2006.

You may have already received information or contact from the company handling the potential renewal of your claim. There is a process which must be followed in order to petition for renewal of the claim.  The Massachusetts 9/11 Fund is pursuing this at a policy level - connecting with our elected leadership at the federal and state levels - requesting consideration for the 9/11 families receiving this benefit - in the hope that there will be some pressure placed on companies looking to discontinue benefits.

The Massachusetts 9/11 Fund will be holding an informational session at the fund with a noted attorney in Massachusetts who specializes in Worker's Compensation claims.

PLEASE RSVP as soon as you can to express your potential interest in this:
