FAQ: Question & Answer
What types of expenses are crime victims compensated for?
According to the Victim Compensation Program Guidelines, at a minimum, the Victims of Crime Act (VOCA) requires states to award compensation for medical expenses, mental health counseling, lost wages, and funeral expenses when they are attributable to a compensable crime. For more information regarding expenses covered in your State, please contact your State Victim Compensation Program. The National Association of Crime Victim Compensation Boards may also be able to provide some assistance.
