Manville: MAP

Per Manville’s TDP, the Trust’s distribution to all claimants for the first nine months of a year shall not exceed 85% of the Maximum Annual Payment (MAP) determined for that year.  Manville has reached this limit for 2019.  Therefore, any claim with a status of “Awaiting Offer Funding” will not receive payment until October of 2019.  Please refer to the 2002 TDP Section H.8 for further details.

Manville: Industry/Occupations

The Manville Trust has expanded its industry/occupation pairings chart with the consent of the Selected Counsel of the Beneficiaries (SCB).  An updated chart has been posted to the website and in-process claims have been updated accordingly.   Additionally, the 2002 claim form has been updated to include many additional occupations.  The industry codes have also been streamlined to coincide with those industries most relevant to asbestos-injury claims.  In process claims have been mapped to these new industries and occupations.

Recent eClaims Enhancements: 4/7/2019

1) CRMC has added a new security feature labeled “Payment” on the person page for each law firm user.  Those provided permission by the firm’s administrator will have access to the following reports:
EFT Check/Detail page
EFT Summary page
Accepted offers detail/summary reports
Outstanding offers report
Pending Expiration Report
Executive Summary
The executive summary report is new and contains confidential settlement dollar information which is why the payment security feature has been added.  Administrators, you will need to set this security parameter for only those personnel you wish to grant access to.
2) Addition of “Action By” drop-down on the claim listing page.  This allows you to locate claims for a Trust that require attention by the firm.
3) An updated User Guide has been posted.
