Who Should File a Claim

The TDP sets forth medical and exposure criteria required to qualify for compensation from the Trust.

If you are unsure of your eligibility, you may still file a claim with the Trust.  Your claim will be reviewed to determine your eligibility.

Choosing Claim Option

You must choose between two types of claim filing processes: Expedited or Individual Review. The Expedited Review option may be a much shorter process resulting in a quicker response for payment. The Individual Review option undergoes a more detailed review and the value of the claims is determined by the information provided.

Expedited Review

  • Processed first, in order of first received by the Trust;
  • Single, fixed payment;
  • All claims of the same disease category receive the same payment amount;
  • All claims are evaluated identically.

Individual Review

  • Undergoes a more detailed review;
  • Receives Individualized evaluation;
  • Could result in a higher or lower payment than the Expedited Review
