Region-Specific Pension Program Under the Article 2 Fund

The Region-Specific Pension program under the Article 2 fund (Region-Specific Pension Program) is open and currently receiving applications.

Jewish Nazi victims, who currently do not receive a pension as compensation for persecution during the Holocaust, might be entitled to receive the monthly pension of €375 (USD $443) if they satisfy ONE of the following types of region-specific severe persecution during the Nazi period: 

  1. Were at least three months in the Siege of Leningrad; OR 
  2. Lived between April 1, 1941 and August 31, 1944 at least three months under Axis occupation within the borders of Romania, as they were on April 1, 1941; OR 
  3. Lived at least three months in France in hiding, including with access to the outside world. For example, those living in southern France, were able to be out during the day and hid at night when deportations took place.

and meet certain asset and income requirements.

Further, Child Survivor Fund payments, a symbolic one-time payment of €2,500 ($2,930), might also be paid to those who meet the persecution criteria and were born 1928 or later.
