Criminal Injuries Compensation Authority claims time limit calculator | Abuse and Assault Claims Skip to main content

Under normal circumstances the Criminal Injuries Compensation Authority requires that claims are submitted within two years of the incident taking place. Most victims of elidgable crimes are not aware of the CICA's time limits to bring a claim, but there are exceptions if you were a child or have been the victim of certain types of crime.

The calculator below will give an indication of whether you could still make a CICA claim but if you are unsure please get in touch with our CICA team.
