Victims Compensation



The Victims Compensation Assistance Program helps victims and their families through the emotional and physical aftermath of a crime by easing the financial impact placed upon them by the crime. As a victim of crime, you will always be treated with dignity, compassion and respect when being assisted through the victim’s compensation claim process.

You may be eligible to receive financial help from the Victims Compensation Assistance Program for a variety of expenses, such as, medical and counseling expenses, loss of earnings, loss of support, stolen cash, relocation, funeral, or crime scene cleanup.

The best way to file a claim is with the help of a victim advocate at your local Victim Service Program. Or you may file a claim yourself online. If you choose, you may download the victim's compensation claim form, complete and submit to the Victims Compensation Assistance Program.

If you have already filed a victim’s compensation claim and have a claim number and PIN, you can check your claim status online.

You may also contact the Victims Compensation Assistance Program directly at (800) 233-2339 for assistance in filing a claim or to speak to staff that are available to answer your questions.
