Anyone with reason to believe that assets – bank accounts, insurance policies, and/or works of art – belonging to them or to a relative currently remain dormant, unpaid, or lost as result of Nazi persecution may submit a claim to the Holocaust Claims Processing Office (HCPO). Though deadlines for submitting claims to most compensation programs have long since lapsed, it may still be possible to lodge claims with the remaining open processes and/or directly with an institution.

File a Claim

To initiate a claim with the HCPO, please fill out a Claim Form or be prepared to provide the information requested in the claim form to the HCPO:
