Governor Andrew M. Cuomo announced legislation has been signed to extend the period for workers and volunteers to file a Notice of Participation for lost wage and benefits as a result of their involvement in the rescue, recovery and clean-up operations following Sept. 11, 2001.

This bill extends the deadline until Sept. 11, 2022. The extension will allow more individuals additional time to file for workers’ compensation, disability and accident death benefits. The legislation, which takes effect immediately, also protects claims filed on or before Sept. 11, 2022, if the volunteer or workers’ disability occurred between Sept. 11, 2015, through Sept. 11, 2017.
