The ARTRA Asbestos Trust was created in 2007 as a result of the confirmation of the ARTRA Group Chapter 11 Joint Plan of Reorganization (the Plan). The Trust was created to process, liquidate and pay valid asbestos personal injury claims in accordance with the ARTRA Asbestos Trust's Trust Distribution Procedures (the TDP).
Pursuant to the TDP, the Trust has adopted policies and procedures for receiving, reviewing and paying claims for asbestos personal injuries. These procedures include the claim form to be filed as proof of claim with the Trust. The filing instructions, claim form, electronic filer agreement required for electronic submissions, and a complete copy of the TDP are available for download on the Resources page of this website.
Claims may be filed with the Trust on or after November 1, 2007. The initial Claim Filing Date has been set by the Trust as May 1, 2008. All claims filed with the Trust between November 1, 2007 and May 1, 2008 will be deemed filed with the Trust on the Initial Claim Filing Date. The Trust will process such claims in the order stipulated by Section 5.1(a)(1) of the TDP.
