Claims Eligibility Assessment Tool

We’ve created this tool for the Federal Indian Residential Schools Day Scholars settlement to help individuals who attended a Federal Indian Residential School determine if they are eligible to make a claim for the $10,000 Day Scholar Compensation Payment under this settlement. We’ll ask you a series of questions that will determine your eligibility and direct you to the appropriate claims process.  

No personal information is collected or stored through this assessment. 

To begin, please select the tool most relevant to your situation: 

  • Survivor Claims Assessment Tool – Select this tool if you are a Day Scholar submitting a claim for yourself or by your legally appointed representative
  • Estate Claims Assessment Tool – Select this tool if you are submitting a claim on behalf of a Day Scholar who passed away on or after May 30, 2005
