Inspector General issues scathing report on 9/11 Victim Compensation Fund

The federal Office of the Inspector General releases a scathing report on the September 11th Victims Compensation Fund.

During a five-year study, the office says the fund didn't keep supporting documents for some claims, including proof establishing presence at the World Trade Center.

The fund also didn't release full compensation for some expedited claims for deceased claimants and their dependents.

There are also concerns that claimants' personal information was sent through unencrypted emails.

The victim compensation fund released a statement saying it recognizes the Inspector General's audit, and has undergone many changes since the review was completed last year.
