I have experience working with Diocese

Settlement Fund Claim

Administrators Helping Victims and Maximizing Claims

     Eligible claimants who participate in this voluntary program will have the opportunity to receive reparations (i.e., compensation) and, at the Claimant’s option, request support for emotional and pastoral needs.
     The Philadelphia IRRP is effective November 13, 2018 and is available to all Claimants regardless of when they were harmed. The claim of clergy sexual abuse must be directed against clergy of the Philadelphia Archdiocese only, which currently covers the City and County of Philadelphia as well as Bucks, Chester, Delaware, and Montgomery counties. Claimants who assert claims of sexual abuse directed against a member of a religious order or clergy of any other archdiocese or diocese are not eligible to participate in this Program.
     The exclusive claims period for filing a claim pursuant to this Protocol shall be November 13, 2018 through September 30, 2019. All individual claims submitted to the IRRP must be postmarked within this period.
     Individuals who have not previously reported claims of clergy sexual abuse to the Archdiocese may, nevertheless, register to participate in this Program from November 13, 2018 through July 31, 2019
All claims must be submitted by September 30, 2019
Contact me today to assist you in registering your claim and maximizing the compensation you may be entitled to.  I have worked with priest abuse victims in New York State Catholic Church Compensation Programs.
