unstar this property answer text <p>The Criminal Injuries Compensation Scheme 2012 (the Scheme) is a government funded scheme which is designed to compensate victims of violent crime in Great Britain. The rules of the Scheme and the tariff for awards paid under it are approved by Parliament. The Criminal Injuries Compensation Authority (CICA) administers the Scheme and decides all claims independently of Ministers and Parliament.</p><p> </p><p>The CICA identified (a) 10 claims where an overpayment was made and (b) 11 claims where an underpayment was made in 2015-16. All underpayments were rectified with the exception of one claim (amounting to an £80 underpayment) where the applicant could not be traced. The CICA identified (a) 5 claims where an overpayment was made and (b) 3 claims where an underpayment was made in 2016-17. We will also seek to rectify all underpayments for the financial year 2016/17.</p><p> </p><p>There is no minimum time period that must pass after the incident giving rise to the criminal injury before a claim can be made to the CICA. The Scheme requirements are that applicants send their claim so that it is received as soon as reasonably practicable after the incident and in any event no later than two years after the date of that incident.</p><p> </p><p>Additional provision exists for applicants who were aged under 18 at the time of the incident:</p><ul><li>If the incident was reported to the police before an applicant turned 18, and no-one made a claim on their behalf, they can apply to the CICA until the day of their 20th birthday.</li><li>If the incident took place before the applicant turned 18, but was not reported to the police at the time, they can apply to the CICA within two years from reporting the incident to the police.</li></ul><p>The CICA can only extend these time limits where due to exceptional circumstances an application could not have been made earlier; and the evidence provided in support of the application means that it can be determined without further extensive enquiries by a claims officer.</p><p>We advise applicants not to wait until the conclusion of criminal proceedings before applying for compensation.</p><p>The CICA recruited a total of 108 staff during the financial year 2016-2017. The number of full time equivalent staff employed in CICA as at 31 March 2017 was 293.5. This is an increase from 255 as at 31 March 2016.</p>

unstar this property answer text <p>From 1 February 2015 it became mandatory to indicate the nature of the assault when applying for compensation. Previously, applicants did not have to declare this information. The data we hold includes a significant number of applications paid out in 2015 but registered before then, and where no incident type was recorded. For this reason, we are unable to supply meaningful data about crime types recorded in 2015.</p><p> </p><p>CICA made 30,634 awards from 1 January to 31 December 2015, paying £166,126,356 in compensation. The average award was £5,423.</p><p> </p><p>To ensure the application of the Criminal Injuries Compensation Scheme is as robust as possible there are safeguards built in. If any applicant disagrees with a decision they can apply for a review. If they remain unhappy they can appeal to an independent tribunal. The figures include cases in which the award was paid after review and appeal.</p> more like this

The Scheme requires that applicants submit a claim so that that it is received as soon as reasonably practicable after the incident, and in any event no later than two years after the date of that incident. There is additional provision in the Scheme for applicants who were aged under 18 at the time of the incident. Further, the CICA can extend the time limits, but only where due to exceptional circumstances an application could not have been made earlier; and the evidence provided in support of the application means that it can be determined without further extensive enquiries by a claims officer.</p><p> </p><p>CICA issued new guidance in October to its staff on compensating young victims of sexual abuse to improve the way that applications involving claims of child sexual abuse are handled and to ensure every victim gets the compensation to which they are entitled. Wider issues about rules of the compensation scheme will be looked at as part of my Department’s work to develop a strategy for victims, and will take into account the findings and recommendations of the Independent Inquiry into Child Sexual Abuse.</p>
