Update on Setanta Victims Compensation

Claimants of completed or settled claims against Setanta are now being made by the Insurance Compensation Fund through the Accountant’s office of the High Court.  This is being done twice yearly.  The Accountant’s office is paying only 65% of the award or settlement and 65% of the claimant’s legal costs.

The Minister of Finance has now confirmed that the remaining 35% due to Claimants will be paid by the Government. This may take some considerable time as payment cannot be made until legislation has been enacted through the Dáil providing for same.
