All: CRMC System Enhancement – Recategorization Option Clarification

CRMC has re-defined the prior Recategoriztion Option on the Offer status page for all Trust clients. You will now have two options: 1) Recategorization – POC needs to be amended and 2) Recategorization – Ready for CRMC Review. This was previously a two step process where you were required to log your recategorization request and then move the claim forward for processing on the claim page once any claim amendments were complete.

USM: E-Filer

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.

USM: Pro Rata

The USM Trust has increased its pro rata payment percentage from 12.5% to 14% effective April 24, 2014. CRMC is working on the changes to accommodate supplemental payments for those entitled to receive one. Please click this link for additional details.
