For more information, see Eligibility criteria.

How long do I have to claim?

  • Within 2 years from the violent crime.
  • For children, within 2 years of turning 18 years old.

How do I apply?

Please fill out the Primary Victims form and INSP claim form (PDF , 277.9 KB).

PDF forms are also available. 

Documents required

  • A government issued ID, for example, driver’s licence, passport, Medicare card, or card issued by Centrelink.
  • Police or government/government-funded organisation report, or a medical report that provides details about what happened and shows how the violent crime has affected you.
