How to claim a Wuv benefit
To apply for financial support, send a letter to:
Social Insurance Bank (SVB)
Department for Former Members of the Resistance and Victims of War
2300 RB Leiden
In your letter, state your name and address, the date, and the reason for your application.
If you are the widow or widower of a victim of persecution who received a benefit, you do not need to submit an application. We will contact you automatically.
When will you start receiving financial support?
The financial support will always start with usually effect from the first day of the month in which we receive your letter.
You can authorise someone
If you would like to authorise someone to look after your affairs for you, let us know the name and address of the person you wish to authorise as your representative. We will correspond with that person from then on.
