How does VVF decide how much to pay?

The Virginia Victims Fund awards claims based on real financial losses that arise from crimes. Victims and their doctors, counselors, and other care providers submit expenses to the Fund. If a victim deemed eligible, then these expenses are paid at a percentage rate predetermined by a Memorandum of Agreement with the provider to whom the money is owed. For other expenses, like moving or prescriptions, receipts are provided. For lost wages, the victim’s employer completes the Employer Report Form to let VVF know how much time the victim has missed from work. All expenses are documented in some way to indicate the loss and advise VVF how much they need to pay.
