Update on Claims Administration as of October 16, 2023

The Claims Administrator and Abuse Claims Reviewer (ACR) have processed, adjudicated and approved Claim Forms for seventy-six (76) Abuse Claimants as of September 26, 2023. The Abuse Claims Reviewer (ACR) has determined the point allotment for each approved Abuse Claimant. Claim Determination Notices will be sent to approved Abuse Claimants by email and/or by Courier (signature required) starting November 1, 2023.

The Claims Administrator and the ACR currently has sixteen (16) new Claim Forms to process, adjudicate and determine the point allotment for each of these most recent Claims. We hope to have these additional Claim Forms processed and approved by November 1, 2023.

Regardless of the extended Claims Bar Deadline of February 9, 2024, it is still too early to calculate an approved Abuse Claimant's full distribution payment. We must wait until all Abuse Claims are processed, adjudicated and the point allotments for each approved Abuse Claimant is determined to calculate the total points in aggregate and thus the total dollar amount to be paid out of the Net Settlement Fund. Distributions to approved Claimants will occur upon approval by the Court after February 9, 2024.
