Initial success

Sex abuse compensation program reports initial success as deadline window closes

With a Jan. 31 deadline fast approaching, leaders of California’s independent compensation program for victim-survivors of priestly sexual abuse are urging victims to register at the program’s website.

375 people have already registered with the Independent Compensation Program (ICP) for Victim-Survivors of Sexual Abuse of Minors by Priests since it was started by six California dioceses last year. 85 victim-survivors have actually filed claims so far, and 39 of those have received compensation settlements totaling $3.94 million, the program’s administrators, Independent Oversight Committee (IOC), announced Thursday.
