Award from 9/11 Victim Compensation Fund Not Payable to Spouse

An award from the 9/11 Victim Compensation Fund was not payable to the surviving spouse, despite the language of 20 Pa.C.S. § 2102(2), because it was not payable under the act specified in that section, the Air Transportation Safety and System Stabilization Act, but under a later, different act. In Re: Estate of Richard A. Chennisi, 11 Fid.Rep.3d 22 (Chester O.C. 2021), reversed in part, affirmed in part, and remanded, 2022 PA Super 31, ___ A.3d ___ (2/18/2022).
