Deadline Approaches for 9/11 Workers' Comp

September 11 is the last day for 9/11 workers to register for workers' compensation.

It's been nearly 13 years since 9/11, but first responders, volunteers and other cleanup workers are still getting ill because of working in the toxic environment. That's why officials said it's necessary for any person involved in cleanup or rescue after 9/11 and in the surrounding areas to register for workers' compensation benefits.
