Good Cause for Extending Application Deadline


An application for compensation shall be considered filed when received in the office of the Department.


“Good cause” for failure to file an application for compensation within one year of the date of the crime under ORS 147.015 (Eligibility for compensation generally)(1)(A) includes the victim’s lack of knowledge of the Crime Victims’ Compensation Program, failure of an investigating officer to provide information to the victim as required by ORS 147.365 (Law enforcement agencies to inform crime victims of compensation procedure)(1), or mental or physical trauma sustained by the victim rendering the victim unable to timely file the application for compensation. When good cause no longer exists, the victim must file the application for compensation within 30 days.
