PITTSBURGH (Newsradio 1020 KDKA) - It’s expected to take several month for victims who have filed for compensation from the sex abuse fun set up by the Catholic Diocese of Pittsburgh to learn if and how much they will get paid.

367 people have filed for compensation according to fund administrators.

September 30 was the deadline.

While church officials are worried about where the money is coming from, Pittsburgh attorney Alan Perer tells KDKA Radio’s Marty Griffin the church has resources.

“I think they do but I think they’re certainly taking the position that they don’t,” said Perer.

Perer represents about 70 alleged victims.

So far administrators have approved 40 claims for $4.5 million.
