Which authority will help me send a claim to another EU country?
This information is currently unavailable.
What is the role of the assisting authority?
The assisting authority will give you the necessary information on how to obtain compensation, make available the appropriate claim form template and assist you in filling it in, and then send it without delay to the competent deciding authority in another EU Member State.
The assisting authority cooperates with the deciding authorities in other EU Member States, which examine claims for compensation from people whose place of permanent residence is in Poland. As part of the cooperation, the assisting authority provides, in consultation with people seeking compensation, additional information and documents, hears persons indicated by the assisting authorities and helps to organise the hearing of persons indicated, using technical equipment that makes a remote hearing possible.
Will this authority translate the supporting documents, if the outgoing claim needs this? If so, who pays for this?
If documents sent to the deciding authorities in other EU Member States need to be translated, the assisting authority decides whether they are to be translated at the expense of the State Treasury.
Are there administrative or other charges to be paid when the claim is sent abroad?
There is no charge for sending the claim for compensation abroad.
