Ground Zero Workers and Lung/Respiratory Problems

Airway, Lung, or Upper Digestive Tract Problems

If you participated in the recovery efforts or lived near 'Ground Zero' after the terrorist attacks on the World Trade Center towers on 9/11, you may be eligible to receive money and benefits for illnesses related to your lungs, airway, or upper digestive track – also called aerodigestive disorders.

The James Zadroga 9/11 Healthcare and Compensation Act was created to help 9/11 workers and responders with medical bills and illnesses that were a direct result of being near dangerous toxins and involved in recovery efforts. It became effective on January 2, 2011.
