Virginia Victims Fund has the statutory responsibility pursuant to Virginia Code § 19.2-368.15 to “recover payments on account of losses resulting from the crime with respect to which the award is made.” Once an individual is convicted of a crime upon which an award of a claim is based, any awards that are made for expenses not included in court-ordered restitution will be billed directly to the individual convicted of the crime and is required to make regular monthly payments to Virginia Victims Fund for balances owed.
The debtor will be entered into the Virginia Tax Debt Set-Off system. Tax refunds, lottery winnings, etc. paid to the debtor through the Virginia Treasury will be intercepted by the Fund until the debt is paid in full. Additionally, VVF will ask the Commonwealth’s Attorney to request restitution in the amount paid by VVF § 19.2-368.5(D)
Debtors have the right to appeal any debt that is owed to VVF. You may file an appeal by mailing your request to:
Attention: Debtor Appeals, Virginia Victims Fund
PO Box 26927
Richmond, VA 23261
Please note that VVF cannot accept appeal requests by email.
