Crime Victim Compensation

Anyone can become a victim of crime. The physical, emotional, and financial impact of trauma can last far beyond the crime itself. But you are not alone.

If you or someone you know is a victim of crime, certain expenses may qualify for Crime Victim Compensation coverage. This program may help pay out-of-pocket medical expenses, lost earnings, funeral bills, counseling, or other expenses for people who have been harmed as the direct result of a crime. 

Contact the Michigan Crime Victim Compensation Program to learn more.
