Persons who involuntarily worked for little or no remuneration at the insistence or direction of the Nazi Regime (including Axis countries) may be entitled to a payment of up to $1,450 from the Swiss Banks Settlement. Holocaust survivors who have applied to the German Foundation, “Remembrance, Responsibility and the Future,” established to compensate former slave and forced laborers under the Nazis, will automatically be considered for an additional payment from the Swiss Banks Settlement. Thus, they need not apply specifically for the Swiss Banks Settlement. THERE IS NO SEPARATE APPLICATION FOR THIS PAYMENT.
Heirs (spouse, children, grand-children, siblings and testamentary heirs) of former forced and slave laborers who died after February 15, 1999 are also eligible for payment from this fund.
Jewish residents of the Czech Republic, Poland or the former Soviet Union should contact the local Claims Conference office in those countries. Non-Jewish applicants should contact the International Organization for Migration.
