GLOSSARY: NETHERLANDS' ACT...

ISSUE DATE: 06/2016

NETHERLANDS' ACT (WUV)
WUV is a Dutch acronym for payments the Dutch government makes under the Netherlands' Act on Benefits for Victims of Persecution 1940-1945. These payments are for both Dutch and non-Dutch people who, during the German and Japanese occupation of the Netherlands and Netherlands East Indies (now the Republic of Indonesia) in World War II, were victims of persecution because of their race, religion, beliefs, or homosexuality and, as a result of that persecution, suffer from illness or disability. Payments under this Act began 1-1-73, and include 4 categories of benefits: periodic income payments; compensation for non-definable disability expenses (Dutch acronym, NMIK); reimbursement of persecution-related disability expenses; and partial compensation for persecution-related disability expenses. See 0015.27 (Assets - Income), 0017.15.57 (Payments to Persecution Victims).
