Hundreds of September 11th first responders and survivors are getting full compensation after Congress provided funding.

The September 11th Victim Compensation Fund has authorized payments on more than a thousand claims totaling more than $230 million.

The payments will be made to "Group A" claimants who received letters on or before December 17, 2015. 

The fund hopes to have all "Group A" claims paid by June.
