UNITED STATES -- The deadline is fast approaching for victims of the September 11th terrorist attacks. Individuals who were hurt or made sick as a result of the attacks have until October 3rd to apply for a victim compensation fund.
According to the fund's website, it's too late to apply by mail.
People interested in filing a claim must do so on www.vcf.gov as the deadline will not be extended. If you need assistance, call the VCF Helpline at 1-855-885-1555.
