How you may be eligible for compensation.
The CICP is a federal compensation program that was established to help families who have lost a loved one in connection with Covid-19 treatment.
Lost a loved one to Covid-19 treatment?
A death benefit of up to $365,370 could be awarded to a surviving family member.
Has a loved one or someone you know died from Covid-19 treatment?
Injuries from covid vaccines and other treatments can and do occur. Instances of adverse reactions such as an anaphylactoid reaction, cardiac arrest, cardiovascular injury, hypertension, respiratory issues, and even death have been recorded following the Covid-19 treatments.
What types of Covid-19 treatment are eligible?
These eligible treatments are called “Covered Countermeasures” under the Countermeasures Injury Compensation Program. They include any drugs, vaccines or medical devices used to treat a Covid-19 infection. An example of a Covered Countermeasure would be a ventilator or medication which was used to treat a Covid-19 patient but later attributed to their death.
What is the Countermeasures Injury Compensation Program?
Created by the federal government and managed by the Department of Health and Human Services, the Countermeasures Injury Compensation Program (“CICP”) is a no-fault alternative to the traditional legal system. It was enacted through the Public Readiness and Emergency Preparedness Act (“PREP Act”) to provide potential compensation for families who have lost loved ones as a result of receiving a covered countermeasure.
Types of benefits from the CICP
During the 2020 fiscal year the CICP states that a surviving family member who has died from Covid-19 treatment between October 1, 2019 through September 30, 2020 could be eligible for a “death benefit” of up to $365,670.
During the 2021 fiscal year the CICP has increased the potential “death benefit” amount to $370,376 for those who have lost a family member to Covid-19 treatment between October 1, 2020 through September 31, 2021. The CICP also may provide up to $50,000 in reimbursement for out of pocket medical expenses and or lost wages.
Recently, My Vaccine Lawyer's founding partner Max Muller was interviewed by NBC Philadelphia about vaccine injuries in the National Vaccine Injury Compensation Program, a federal compensation program for vaccine injuries in the United States.

How long do I have to submit a claim?
You have one year from the administration of the Covered Countermeasure (not date of death) to file a Request for Benefits. IT IS URGENT THAT YOU FILE YOUR CLAIM WITHIN THIS ONE YEAR PERIOD OR YOU WILL LOSE ELIGIBILITY FOR COMPENSATION.
Submitting a Request for Benefits
If a loved one has passed away due to Covid-19 treatment, a current surviving family member can submit a claim to the CICP on their behalf. The Countermeasures Injury Compensation Program requires the following order of priority to submit a Request for Benefits:
- Surviving Spouse;
- Surviving children and or minors under 18;
- Beneficiary of life insurance policy;
- Parents; and
- Legal guardian of a deceased minor.
In order to submit a Request for Benefits you will need a death certificate and comprehensive medical records.
Is this a lawsuit?
All cases filed in the CICP are no fault claims. These claims are not lawsuits filed against any medical provider or vaccine manufacturer. The intention of the CICP is to provide a federal trust fund that compensates families who have lost loved ones from Covid-19 treatment. Our team of attorneys at My Vaccine Lawyer have experience filing cases in the CICP and representing clients across the country.
Do I need an attorney to represent me?
Before the CICP can award benefits, it must first determine that the death or injury was a direct result of covered countermeasure treatment received for COVID-19. The CICP review board has staff doctors and medical professionals that complete a complex review of the medical records, pharmacy records and lab studies, when applicable, and documents submitted.
My Vaccine Lawyer has a team of medical experts, nurses and professional staff who have extensive knowledge of FDA approved documents on the countermeasures (e.g., Drug Product Label, Medication Guide, Patient Package Insert), in an effort to support the “causation” element required to prove that the covered countermeasure was a “direct result” of death.
The appeal process is extremely limited and only the evidence submitted with the original claim for benefits will be considered. This only enhances the importance of using an attorney to submit your claim with the appropriate documents in order to bolster your claim and to protect your rights on appeal.
What if a Covered Countermeasure was not used?
The CICP will only approve a Request for benefit if it determines a Covered Countermeasure was used. The death also has to be a direct result of the Covered Countermeasure. The CICP will not accept a Request for Benefit if a Covered Countermeasure was not used.
