NYSWCB Request WTC Forms By Sept. 13


New York, NY (CompNewsNetwork) - The New York Workers' Compensation Board requests that all WTC-12 forms, which are filed by World Trade Center rescue, recovery, and clean-up workers to preserve their right to future benefits, must arrive at tha Board by Monday, Sept. 13, 2010.

The consequences of the September 11, 2001, attacks on the World Trade Center (WTC) are still felt in New York today. Workers who performed rescue, recovery and clean-up duties continue to file and pursue workers' compensation claims. While the New York State Workers' Compensation Board has 13,676 cases in its systems, this study contains data on the 11,627 cases where the Board has meaningful detail on case outcomes (see Appendix A). Claims from groups such as federal employees and New York City uniformed police, firefighters and sanitation workers, are also not included because they are covered outside the state workers' compensation system.

As a result of the World Trade Center disaster, 11,627 workers' compensation claims were filed with the New York State Workers' Compensation Board. More than half the claims (6,427) were for deaths and injuries suffered as a direct result of the attacks. There were a total of 2,058 death cases for victims, 3 death cases for rescue, recovery and clean-up workers, and 3 other consequential death cases.
