Compensation advice

The AJR offers advice and assistance with claims for Holocaust era compensation and the restitution of appropriated assets. As well as information about pensions, property and insurance policies, help is available for enquiries related to forced and slave labour and lump sum reparations paid by individual governments or commissions.

The AJR works closely with the UK Envoy for Post Holocaust Issues, Sir Andrew Burns, to raise awareness of outstanding restitution and compensation matters.

We are proud that alongside delivering guidance and advice, we have worked with the British government to ensure that certain compensation awards are exempt from income, capital gains and inheritance taxes and that lump sum compensations are disregarded when calculating entitlement to social security benefits.

Although the deadlines for many reparation schemes have expired it is still possible to apply to certain programmes.

Please note that no responsibility can be taken for rejected or unsuccessful claims.
