Pulse victims, families to start filing for claims for OneOrlando Fund

$23 million to be distributed after Orlando massacre

ORLANDO, Fla. – Two months after the Pulse nightclub mass shooting, victims on Friday will be able to start filing claims for compensation from the OneOrlando Fund.

The organizers of the fund originally said the claim form would be made available on Thursday, but that was pushed back until final recommendations for distribution of the more than $23 million was approved.

In early August, the board for the OneOrlando Fund received suggestions from the public in two town hall meetings held at the Amway Center.

Since the beginning, the idea has been that the most money will go to the families of those who died, then those with the most serious injuries. The least amount would go to those who were inside the club when the shootings happened, but were not injured.

The form for filing claims is expected to be made available around midday Friday.
