FAQ: Question & Answer
How does the International Terrorism Victim Expense Reimbursement Program (ITVERP) work?
The International Terrorism Victim Expense Reimbursement Program (ITVERP) operates much like a state crime victim compensation program but is operated by the federal government. It reimburses victims for expenses they have already incurred that are directly linked to the terrorist incident that occurred outside the United States.
Victims must meet certain eligibility requirements, apply to the program, and submit all of their supporting documentation before their application is complete and can be considered for a reimbursement award.
ITVERP is available to victims only after they have exhausted all other sources that could cover their expenses. ITVERP only reimburses individuals for specific out-of-pocket expenses directly related to the international act of terrorism.
