Rockville Centre (New York) Diocese Extends Registration Deadline for Claims Fund

This week, the Diocese of Rockville Centre extended the registration deadline for its voluntary compensation fund, called the Independent Reconciliation and Compensation Program (IRCP). The fund, created several years ago following similar successful programs in New York State, is a confidential alternative to litigation.

Last year, New York created a one year “window” of time for anyone sexually abused in the state to file a lawsuit against those responsible for the abuse, including the Diocese of Rockville Centre.  This compensation fund is an attempt to resolve claims without the time or expense of traditional litigation.  Those filing claims in the compensation fund do not waive the ability to file a lawsuit at a later time in the event they reject the compensation fund’s offer.

The new deadline to register claims for the fund is May 31, 2020.  Contact us as soon as possible to discuss your options.  If you miss that deadline, you may be forever barred from participating in the fund.

If you were sexually abused by a priest or other employee of the Diocese of Rockville Centre, it is very important to discuss your legal options with competent, experienced attorneys.  The Diocese of Rockville Centre has countless people working to protect its interests, and you should too.  Our attorneys have four decades of experience representing victims of sexual abuse by clergy nationwide.  Put our experience to work for you.
