Claim Management System

While a hard copy version of the Claim Form is available, we encourage you to submit your claim using the new online claim system. You can use this system to:

  • Create an account and register with the VCF to preserve your right to file a claim in the future.
  • Complete and submit the claim form.
  • File an amendment to a previously submitted claim by following these instructions.
  • Upload supporting documents to a claim.
  • View correspondence sent by the VCF.
  • Update your contact information or the information for your attorney or authorized representative.
  • View the information you provided when completing your claim form,
    including any information you may have entered on a claim form that you started but have not yet submitted.

If you are new to the system, this Navigation Tip Sheet provides information on how to navigate the online claim system.
