Please use these guidelines for efficient and secure claims filing.
NAME, EMAIL ADDRESS & CLAIM NUMBER
Provide your complete name, Email address and any other case-specific information that may be requested. Be sure to include any identifying number from the Notice that is associated with your case (if you received one), and if requested during the submission process. Once you receive a claim number it should be used in any correspondence submitted to Heffler Claims Group.
SOCIAL SECURITY & TAX IDENTIFICATION NUMBERS
Many cases that include a distribution require Heffler Claims Group to verify claimant information. Typically, this is your Social Security (SSN) number or Tax Identification (TIN) number, which is also required for tax reporting on federal Form 1099. Your claim may be rejected if this information is not accurate or omitted. Please note that all such confidential information is maintained on a secure database for internal use only.
Claim filing periods are typically defined on the Claim Form associated with your case. It is important that you complete and submit the claim form by the deadlines noted in the form. Make certain that the information on the claim form is accurate and legible or it could be rejected.
Double-check that you have provided comprehensive documentation, if requested. Do not send originals (unless required), and maintain copies of each document you submit. Contact Heffler Claims Group if you are not sure what types of documentation are acceptable: 855-711-8800.
You must sign your own claim form. A beneficial owner or legal representative who is authorized to sign for you must also sign the claim form.
Submit your claim by the deadline indicated on the Claim Form. If you would like a receipt, send via Certified Mail/Return Receipt Requested.
Please be patient. Cases have many Claim Form submissions that must be verified before distributions can occur. It is possible that additional data may be requested of you after receipt of the initial Claim Form, and before your claim can be processed.
