A Message from Comptroller Thomas P. DiNapoli

New York State Office of the State Comptroller, Comptroller Thomas P. DiNapoli

Americans will never forget the tragic events of September 11, 2001, or the thousands of people who helped in the rescue, recovery and clean up efforts at the World Trade Center. From Ground Zero to the Fresh Kills Landfill, men and women worked around the clock doing their part to help New Yorkers and our country recover from this devastating event, often risking their own lives and health in the process.

This publication provides information about laws that may apply to you or your family if you were one of the courageous workers who participated in this effort. For those of you who gave so much, these laws may provide some small measure of assistance.

Please read this information carefully. If you have any questions about the benefits described here, please contact our Call Center.

Sincerely, Thomas P. DiNapoli State Comptroller
