As an organization dedicated to helping victims of crime move from crisis to confidence, we recognize pursuing justice as an important step in the process. If you are a survivor of a crime and have been awarded restitution monies by a judge as a result of a court determination in a criminal case, then Safe Horizon can help you claim those funds.
This website will help you confirm your restitution award and gives you an opportunity to provide updated contact information so that you may receive your payment when it is available.
Safe Horizon collects restitution payments from the perpetrator of a crime (defendant) as part of a sentencing agreement in a criminal case in New York City. After a defendant has made a payment, restitution funds are disbursed out to the victim(s), provided there is accurate and updated contact information on file. Through the online form below, Safe Horizon will determine whether it has your most current information so that you can receive your payment when the money is available. If your information is outdated or incomplete, you can update your information by responding to the email you will receive in response to your inquiry.
Complete this form to check the status of funds that you have yet to receive.
