Crime Victims Compensation Fund

The state of Missouri has a fund to reimburse some crime victims for certain losses. You may be eligible for benefits if:

  • You are a victim of violent crime and suffered personal bodily injury;
  • You are a relative who requires counseling to better assist a sexual assault victim with recovery;
  • You are a spouse, child or other dependent of a victim who has died as a direct result of a crime, or you assumed financial obligations incurred as a result of the victim's death; or
  • Abused by a boyfriend or girlfriend.
  • Depending on the case, victim's compensation may be available for medical care, psychiatric treatment or other counseling, funeral expenses and wage loss reimbursement for the victim. Total recovery may not exceed $25,000.
