Compensation Commission




Important Notice


The United Nations Compensation Commission concluded the claims-processing exercise in 2005, and payments to individuals concluded in 2007.

It is not possible anymore, no matter what the circumstances, to accept new claims or make corrections or changes to previous claims. All payments have already been made through respective Governments and UNCC will not make any further payment to any individual or company. The UNCC does not have any branches in any country and does not have any individual or bank as agent.

The Commission communicates only with Governments and can not communicate directly with individual claimants, and will not respond directly to any enquiries. Information on the work of the United Nations Compensation Commission is contained on this website through the tabs below.

The United Nations Compensation Commission (UNCC) was created in 1991 as a subsidiary organ of the UN Security Council. Its mandate is to process claims and pay compensation for losses and damage suffered as a direct result of Iraq's unlawful invasion and occupation of Kuwait
