The United States Mineral Products Company Asbestos PI Settlement Trust (the “Trust”) temporarily suspended claim filing and processing (for both new and previously-filed claims) on January 1, 2020. The Trust is switching to a new claims processing facility.
December 31, 2019 was the last day the Trust accepted claims through CRMC.
The Trust’s new claims processing facility is Verus LLC. Verus will begin processing Trust claims on or before April 1, 2020. The Trust will give notice to claimants and claimants’ counsel at least two weeks prior to the resumption of claims filing and processing of the details on how to file both new Trust claims and material relating to previously-filed claims with Verus.
The statute of limitations for all Trust claims with a statute deadline between January 1 and December 31, 2020 will be extended until December 31, 2020. All deadlines for responses to deficiency notifications or acceptance of offers during this period will also be extended until December 31, 2020.
