The Immigrant Restitution Fund was established by the Attorney General to compensate individuals who were defrauded by two of the nation’s largest immigration services organizations
New York Legal Assistance Group (NYLAG) has been selected by the Attorney General to administer the Fund and will evaluate claims and forward payments to immigrants who received legal services from IIF or IPA. They would like to reach as many potential former clients of IIF/IPA as possible.
People can submit a claim online or submit a printed form via mail, fax or email. The deadline to submit a claim is October 23, 2014, which is quickly approaching. For more information on the Fund, you can also visit: http://nylag.org/ipa.
