When can I expect to receive my restitution money?
Restitution payments are usually made to the local probation department by the perpetrator. In New York City, non-probation restitution may be referred to Safe Horizon or another non-profit collection agency. Payments are based on the amount ordered and disbursed according to the schedule of payments in the restitution order. The appropriate restitution collection agency will then send a check to you accordingly.
