Victim Compensation

If you are hurt as a result of a violent crime, you may be eligible for compensation of medical or mental health expenses through the Washington State Crime Victims' Compensation Program. If the crime results in a loss of work or disability, you may be eligible for partial repayment of lost income or a pension. Family members of homicide victims may be eligible for mental health and funeral expenses. Compensation through this program is not available for stolen or damaged property.
