    Important Notice about delay in processing VCF Payments:

    The Department of Justice's financial management system that is used to process VCF payments will be shut down from
    September 27, 2017 to October 11, 2017 in order to migrate to a new financial management system.

    This migration will require the Civil Division, under which the VCF falls, to stop processing VCF payments on September 27, 2017.
    The Department anticipates the migration will complete on October 11, 2017; payment processing will resume on October 12, 2017.

    The VCF has worked closely with the Department's finance staff to ensure that payments on claims approved for expedited
    processing as a result of terminal illness or imminent financial hardship can be processed during this transition period.

    We greatly appreciate your patience during this transition.
