Application & Payment Information
Each type of application has documents which may need to be completed and uploaded as part of the process. Please click “Before you start…” document below for the appropriate category, download, and complete the information before beginning the online application. Please note that some documents may require signatures and notarization.
Funds are distributed once the Steering Committee approves a distribution plan for approved applicants. Funds will be distributed in the following ways:
- Zelle (For those who are 18 or over only)
- Check (For those under the age of 18, utilizing Special Needs Trusts, or those unable to receive funds via Zelle)
Victims or beneficiaries over the age of 18, who do not require a Special Needs Trust, may be paid via Zelle.
Special Needs Trusts– If you are receiving income-based government assistance, we recommend that you consult an attorney. They may advise you to set up a Special Needs Trust so none of your government benefits will be negatively affected by receiving this gift. If you happen to already have a Special Needs Trust, that Trust might be able to be used for your Fund payment.
Custodial Accounts – In accordance with the Uniform Transfer to Minors Act, payments to minor victims or beneficiaries must be placed in a custodial bank account. A custodial bank account is one that is in the child’s name, but for which the parent or guardian acts as custodian. If the child does not already have a custodial bank account, we recommend that you open one prior to submitting your application. Any bank can set up a custodial account for you. A custodial account will typically be named something like: “Custodian John Smith on behalf of Adrian Smith” or ”Custodial Account for Adrian Smith”.
