The Claims Process differs depending on whether you are a Day Scholar applying on your own behalf, or if you are applying on behalf of a Day Scholar who passed away on or before May 30, 2005. 

For claims relating to any IRSs in List 1 (IRSs with known Day Scholars), no supporting documentation is required to prove the Day Scholars’ attendance beyond the basic information in the Claim Form itself.  

For claims relating to any IRSs in List 2 (IRSs that may have had Day Scholars), claimants will be required to provide a formal sworn statement confirming that they were a Day Scholar and explaining where they were living when they attended the IRS as a Day Scholar.  

If you need assistance filling out the claim form, please contact the Claims Administrator. A document explaining the complete Claims Process can be found at
