The VCF has received 26,907 Eligibility claims, of which they have made a total of 20,938 eligibility decisions (78% of all claims filed). As of March 31, 2017, the VCF has received 21,857 compensation claims, of which the VCF has rendered decisions on 12,435 where eligibility has been approved. Although a compensation claim may have been submitted, the Fund cannot render an award decision on a claim until there is an eligibility decision. Therefore, some of the 21,857 compensation claim submissions are not yet entitled to an award determination.
