The application procedure
The application procedure is conducted digitally. You will answer questions and be given an opportunity to upload the documents needed to support your application within a secure online environment. Once you have completed the application, you will be sent a message confirming receipt of your application. 

The Committee will begin processing your application once it has been submitted in full. You will be notified of the Committee’s decision regarding your application by email. 

The procedure has been designed to minimise the effort required from applicants. It is being implemented in cooperation with Camp Westerbork Memorial Centre, where a great deal of information is already available. Processing time for an application will not exceed 13 weeks. Applicants will be notified in the event the Committee requires more time. The Committee strives to prioritise applications submitted by elderly individuals so that these applications may be evaluated more quickly. 

Help with the digital application
Are you having difficulty submitting your digital application? Free support is available for individuals who are unable to obtain assistance from their family or friends. If you require support, please contact one of the following organisations: 

JMW: +31 088 – 165 22 00 
Stichting Pelita: +31 088 – 330 51 11 

The specific documents you will need to submit along with your application will vary depending on the nature of your application. Processing an application submitted by the child of a stakeholder, for instance, will require different documents than processing a claim submitted by the stakeholder themselves. Please refer to this page to find out which documents apply in your case. 

The Committee is aware of the sensitive nature of the personal data requested from those who submit an application. For this reason, we will request only those data necessary in order to process the application and will ensure that this information is handled carefully and in the strictest confidence, and that it is used only for the purpose of evaluating your application. The data will not be used for any other purpose and will be destroyed as soon as possible once it is no longer necessary to retain the data. In the Privacy Statement, which is available here. the Committee sets out which personal data we collect, why we do so and how long we will retain these personal data. The statement also informs applicants for individual compensation of their rights in connection with their personal data.
