Effective January 1, 2017 Bill Tomlinson has retired from CRMC after 29 years of dedicated service. His position is being filled by Genc Zaja. We wish Bill all the best in the years to come.
Effective immediately CRMC will be the NARCO Asbestos Trust’s sole claims processor. CRMC will process all types of claims filed with the NARCO Asbestos Trust (Expedited Review, Individual Review, Liquidated Pre-Established, and Indirect Claims). Garden City Group, LLC will no longer accept or process claims of any kind in connection with the NARCO Asbestos Trust. Please review the NARCO Asbestos Trust’s homepage for more information on the filing of claims with the NARCO Asbestos Trust.
Effective immediately, the US Mineral Trust will no longer offer its “E-file” electronic filing option. All eClaims users currently using E-filing have been converted to hybrid filing (“H-filing”), which still permits electronic filing of claimant information. Using H-filing, users may complete the claim form electronically online and upload any required documents, just as with E-filing. The difference is that, using H-filing, a CRMC Claim Review Analyst will run the CDT valuation program in every case. Please be advised that, particularly in the initial period following this transition, review times will likely increase. However, CRMC has retained additional staff to assist in this effort and will work as quickly as possible to review your claim(s) in a timely manner.
IMPORTANT NOTICE: A decision has been made as to the pro rata payment percentage. CRMC is in the process of completing programming changes and will resume making offers as soon as possible at the new percentage. Please view the details here.
