Crime Victims Compensation

Victims who have suffered loss of earnings and out-of-pocket loss for injuries sustained as a direct result of violent crime may qualify for financial assistance from the Kansas Crime Victims Compensation Board. Loss may include reasonable medical care, mental health counseling or other services necessary as a result of the injury. If the crime resulted in the death of the victim, reasonable medical expenses and the partial cost of funeral, burial or cremation may be reimbursable. Personal property loss is not covered other than any clothing and bedding seized as evidence. Crime Victims Compensation Division of the Attorney General's Office administers these services.

The first step in receiving compensation assistance is to fill out an application and file with the Crime Victims Compensation Division. Please allow at least three (3) months for your application to be reviewed. You have the right to appeal the board's decision if you disagree. Please click here for an application.

If you have further questions, please contact the Kansas Attorney General.
