No, an application can be submitted at any time following the commission of a crime. However, the longer you wait to submit an application, the harder it is for our Program to obtain the necessary police documentation to determine your eligibility.
Once the Program has determined eligibility and have bills and supporting documentation a payment can be made, but the amount may be limited due to policy caps on a specific loss.
Reimbursement is made directly to the victim for their out of pocket expenses. Otherwise, the money will be paid directly to the service providers, such as hospitals, doctors, or funeral homes.
Since the Victims Compensation Program is payer of last resort, if any sources of reimbursement are available, the sources must be used first before any compensation payment can be made. Applicants are responsible for informing the Program of all of the available reimbursement sources, including the following:
Once the application is received, it is assigned to a claims specialist who will assist in the processing of a victim's application. The application is entered into our database, and the victim will receive a letter from the Program indicating that we have received your application and we are in the process of obtaining the necessary documentation to determine eligibility.
If a victim has outstanding bills at the time they should include them with the application. If a victim has insurance, all losses must be submitted though a victim's insurance first. The Compensation Program is required to verify that each loss that is submitted is directly related to the crime.
