North Carolina Crime Victims Compensation Services

Victims Compensation Services logoVictims Compensation Services reimburses citizens who suffer medical expenses and lost wages as a result of being an innocent victim of a crime committed in North Carolina. Victims of rape, assault, child sexual abuse, domestic violence, and drunk driving, as well as the families of homicide victims are eligible to apply for financial help.

Since 1987, Victims Compensation Services has assisted innocent victims and their families to heal from the devastating effects of criminal violence with payments for a diversity of needs, including medical care, counseling, lost wages and funerals. Like other compensation programs, North Carolina is a payer of last resort paying for financial losses not covered by other sources, including, but not limited to:

  • Health Insurance
  • Auto or disability insurance
  • Public funds such as Medicaid
  • Workers Compensation; or
  • Restitution paid by an offender.

The program does NOT compensate victims for damaged or stolen property or for pain and suffering.

A maximum of $30,000 may be paid for an award for medical expenses related to treatment of injuries as a result of the crime. A maximum of $5,000 may be paid for funeral expenses when the victim dies as a result of the crime. Benefits for approved claims are paid directly to a service provider.

While no amount of money can erase the trauma and grief victims suffer, this aid can be crucial in the recovery process. By paying for care that restores victims' physical and mental health, and by replacing lost income for victims who cannot work and for families who lose a breadwinner, compensation programs are helping victims regain their lives and their financial stability.
