9/11 Compensation Fund
The fund that compensates those suffering from illnesses related to the Sept. 11, 2001 terrorist attacks has picked up the pace of evaluating applications after a slow start.
The deal would pay first responders anywhere from several thousand to about $2 million, depending on the severity of their illness.
Lawyers for about 10,000 workers tentatively worked out a settlement last spring. It could be worth $625 million to $712.5 million, depending on how many people take the deal.
