VCF FAQ

1.2 我提出了我的索赔。何时将对我的索赔作出裁决?

May 4, 2022

一般情况下,我们将根据提交的日期以“先进先出”的顺序审核索赔。对于2016年8月1日之后提交的索赔而言,这就是《索赔表》提交的日期。这意味着VCF会优先处理那些等待了较长时间的索赔,然后才开始审核较新提交的索赔。

VCF继续缩短对索赔做出裁决所需的时间,并且正在努力在提交《索赔表》或修改后的一年内做出裁决(假定已提交了处理索赔所需的全部信息)。下面的索赔审核时间线图表反映了最新的审核索赔的状态。

VCF FAQ

1.2 Złożyłem/am wniosek. Kiedy zostanie podjęta decyzja w mojej sprawie?

May 4, 2022

Na ogół wnioski są rozpatrywane w kolejności napływania – na podstawie daty złożenia wniosku o odszkodowanie. Dla wniosków złożonych po 1 sierpnia 2016 roku jest to data złożenia Formularzu Wniosku. Oznacza to, że wnioski oczekujące na rozpatrzenie dłużej mają pierwszeństwo przed wnioskami nowymi.

VCF FAQ

1.2 I filed my claim. When will a decision be made on my claim?

May 4, 2022

As a general rule, claims are reviewed in “first in, first out” order based on the date the compensation claim was submitted. For claims submitted after August 1, 2016, this is the date the Claim Form was submitted. This means the VCF prioritizes claims that have been waiting longer before beginning review of newer submissions.

VCF FAQ

1.2 Ya presenté mi reclamo. ¿Cuándo se decidirá?

May 4, 2022

Como regla general, los reclamos se revisan por orden de llegada, siguiendo el orden la fecha en que se presentó el reclamo de compensación. Los reclamos que se presentaron después del 1 de agosto de 2016, el orden de llegada será el de la presentación del nuevo formulario. Esto significa que el VCF le da prioridad a los reclamos que han estado en espera por más tiempo antes de comenzar a revisar los reclamos más recientes.

VCF FAQ

1.3 是否有任何情况可以加快对我的索赔的审核?

October 17, 2018

有。在涉及绝症或重大经济困难的情况下,您可以要求VCF加快处理您的索赔。VCF认为“重大财务困难”包括迫在眉睫或待决的法拍或驱逐程序,水电煤气中断或其他类似情况,如适当的文件所示。如果您想根据绝症诊断或经济困难寻求快速处理您的索赔,您或者您的律师(若您有律师协助您向我们的VCF索赔)必须拨打VCF的求助热线1-855-885-1555,并将任何适当的文件上传到您的索赔上。您还必须提交完整的《索赔表》和所有必需的证明文件,以便VCF拥有处理您的索赔所需的信息。如果您由律师代理您的VCF索赔,您应该寻求律师的帮助。VCF将审核该请求,并通常在48小时内通知您VCF是否接受或拒绝该请求。在批准加急处理的索赔中,假设您已提交所有必需文件,VCF通常在短到3-4周内可以处理索赔,作出裁决,并处理付款。在这些情况下,一旦发出裁决书,就会立即发出索赔付款,而您保留在三十天申诉期内上诉的权利。
