New York Survivors of Clergy Abuse
Can Now Seek Compensation
How To Present Your Case
In October 2016, the Archdiocese of New York announced a program to compensate victims of sexual abuse by clergy through a voluntary process they are calling the Independent Reconciliation and Compensation Program (IRCP). Victims must submit proof of their sexual abuse to the program administrators postmarked no later than January 31, 2017. The claims will be reviewed by a panel selected by the Archdiocese to oversee the program.
Survivors should be aware that the Archdiocese has complete control over the award of any claims and it is expected that many claims will be denied. Expert representation by experienced legal counsel will significantly increase the chances that a claim will be accepted.
