Instructions for Filing a Expedited Review (ER) Claim
The ER election is designed primarily to provide an expeditious, efficient and inexpensive method of liquidating all claims where the claim can be easily verified as meeting presumptive medical and exposure criteria. The ER method allows claimants to rapidly receive fixed and certain claim payments using a substantially less burdensome application process.
How to Initiate a Claim
If a claimant is qualified and elects to file a claim, he or she must file a complete Claim Form and submit all supporting documentation indicated.
Where to Submit Claim Forms
All paper submissions to the DII Silica Trust should be addressed to:
DII Silica Trust
P.O. Box 106
Wilmington, DE 19899
How to Qualify for Payment
To qualify for payment, a claimant must provide credible medical and exposure evidence and a submission deemed to be complete by the DII Silica Trust.
A claimant must submit the appropriate, fully completed Claim Form, including all supporting information referenced in the form. In addition, a claimant may file on-line using the DII Silica PI Trust website at www.diisilicatrust.com. Individuals wishing to file on-line may download the electronic filer agreement from the website. Any claim filing, whether electronic or on paper, that is not complete or is missing any of the required information, will not be processed until completed by the claimant.
Deadline for Submitting a Claim Form
There is no deadline for submitting claims other than the requirements imposed by the applicable statute of limitation or the notification and election of the Trust processing prior to trial.
