Seventeen years after the Sept. 11 terror attacks, new victims continue to emerge — and officials are now concerned a fund established to help those suffering from 9/11-related illnesses could be in danger of drying up.

The $7.3 billion 9/11 Victims Compensation Fund, created to provide financial assistance to those who suffer from illnesses related to the attack and the toxic dust at Ground Zero, has already paid out $4 billion, leaving about $3 billion until the fund expires in 2020.

“Looking at the data more recently, I’m starting to get a little concerned,” Rupa Bhattacharyya, the Victims’ Compensation Fund special master, told the New York Daily News.

Bhattacharyya told PIX11 the fund isn’t in “imminent” peril of coming up empty, however, the long-term status of the money could be a different story.
