star this property answer text <p>The Criminal Injuries Compensation Scheme 2012 (the Scheme), which was approved by Parliament, sets out the time limits in which applications must be received by the Criminal Injuries Compensation Authority (CICA). The CICA publishes data about the number of claims rejected for being out with the time limit in its annual reports and accounts at: <a href="https://www.gov.uk/search/transparency-and-freedom-of-information-releases?organisations%5B%5D=criminal-injuries-compensation-authority&amp;parent=criminal-injuries-compensation-authority" target="_blank">https://www.gov.uk/search/transparency-and-freedom-of-information-releases?organisations%5B%5D=criminal-injuries-compensation-authority&amp;parent=criminal-injuries-compensation-authority</a></p><p> </p><p>In the 2017-18 annual report and accounts, this data was presented as a proportion of all refusal reasons used. The number of cases refused for being submitted out with the time limit was 1252.</p><p> </p><p>The figures published in the annual reports and accounts show the number of times each rejection reason was used. For some applications there will have been more than one reason for rejection. This means that the total number of reasons for rejection is higher than the actual number of claims refused.</p>

star this property answer text <p>The criteria used by the Criminal Injuries Compensation Authority in determining whether an applicant cannot afford the cost of obtaining medical evidence is outlined in its internal guidance. This states:</p><p> </p><p><em>If the applicant tells us they cannot afford to obtain medical evidence we may meet the cost of doing so and deduct it from any award we make, up to a maximum of £50. However, before we do so you should ask the applicant for evidence of their inability to meet the cost. You should consider all the relevant circumstances in deciding whether you accept the applicant cannot afford to pay for the medical evidence. Some factors you should consider include: </em></p><p> </p><p><em>• whether they are relying solely on any of the benefits listed </em>[as Jobseeker’s Allowance or low-income benefits on gov.uk]<em>; </em></p><p> </p><p><em>• whether they have a low income and are in receipt of any of the tax credits as listed </em>[on gov.uk]</p><p> </p><p><em>• whether they earn less than the minimum amount needed to qualify for Statutory Sick Pay as evidenced by a pay statement or letter from their employer or, if self-employed, copies of their most recent tax returns; or </em></p><p> </p><p><em>• whether they are struggling to manage significant debts, bankruptcy or insolvency.</em></p><p> </p>
