Crime Victim Compensation also takes into consideration secondary victims (i.e. family members, caretakers, etc.). Crime Victim Compensation is a fund of last resort, in other words, you must access your homeowners or health insurance policy first before contacting Victim Compensation. This includes, Medicaid and Medicare. This is an application process and does not guarantee approval or funding. Do not assume your application has been approved until you receive notification from the board. Victim Compensation CAN NOT pay attorney’s fees, impound fees, cost of protection orders, loss of personal property (i.e. food, clothing, jewelry, TVs, stereos) or pain and suffering. Maximum award is $1000 per claim for property. Call for policy limits on all categories.
