Collateral Resource Checklist

Virginia law states that the Virginia Victims Fund is the payer of last resort. This statute requires claimants to exhaust all available collateral resources before VVF can make payment. The resources relevant in each claim depend on both the crime type and the resources available to the victim. Advocates, victims, and Commonwealth Attorneys can use this checklist to help identify relevant insurances and resources in a case. This information will help guide the gathering of claim documentation necessary for payment.
