  • The crime victim must have a minimum $200 out-of-pocket medical expense and/or a loss of two continuous weeks of earnings or support.
  • The compensation claim must be filed within 1 year of the crime or 1 year of the victim's death (although other time limits apply when a child is a victim of sexual abuse, or when a crime is discovered by a law enforcement agency where the injury was previously determined to be accidental, of unknown origin, or from natural causes).
  • A deceased victim's immediate family member may file a claim in the victim's place.
  • Expenses or losses that are covered by personal insurance or that can be paid by another source will not be covered.
  • Compensation is limited to medical expenses, funeral costs, counseling, rehabilitation, and loss of earnings or loss of support resulting from an injury which is the direct result of a crime. Property loss is not covered.
