The MOD operates a discretionary ex-gratia scheme, called the Criminal Injuries Compensation (Overseas) (CIC(O) Scheme). Lump sum payments may be made to members of the armed forces and their accompanying eligible dependants who, while serving overseas, sustain injury (including death) directly attributable to a crime of violence.

The scheme rules in place depend on the date of injury, for more information see the guides.
