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 2018. Therefore, any claim with a status of “Awaiting Offer Funding” will not receive payment until October of 2018. Claims at this status will be carried over to the fourth quarter of 2018 and placed at the head of the FIFO payment queue. Please refer to the 2002 TDP Section H.8 for further details.
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.

The Manville Trust has reached its Maximum Annual Payment (MAP) amount for 2017. Therefore, any claim with a status of “Awaiting Offer Funding” will not receive payment until 2018. Claims at this status will be carried over to 2018 and placed at the head of the FIFO payment queue. Please refer to the 2002 TDP Section H.8 for further details.
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.
FYI: The Manville Trust pro rata discussions are still underway between the Trustees and representatives of the beneficiaries. An update will be posted as soon as discussions have been finalized.
The Manville Trustees have determined to stay all offers to claimants until the Trust’s obligations going forward can be more accurately determined. The Trust has retained consultants to prepare a future claims forecast which will permit the Trust to determine the appropriate pro rata payment percentage and allow the Trust to meet its obligations to current and future claimants. The Trust anticipates this process will take approximately 60 days to complete. Claims for which offers have already been made are not affected by this stay.
The e-Claims status description document has been updated.
Effective April 28, 2016, the Manville Trust will require submission of an executed release prior to payment on claims. After accepting the offer on a claim you will be prompted to generate a release. Once you receive the executed release from the claimant simply upload it to the claim file. It will then be reviewed by CRMC and, once approved, the claim will automatically move into the payment queue.
Effective March 1, 2016, the Manville Trust will no longer offer its “E-file” electronic filing option. All eClaims users currently using E-filing will be 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.
