The ASARCO Asbestos Personal Injury Trust was created in 2009 as a result of the confirmation of the ASARCO 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 ASARCO Asbestos Personal Injury Trust's Amended Trust Distribution Procedures (the "TDP"). The Trust aims to provide fair, equitable, and substantially similar treatment for all personal injury Trust claims that may presently exist or may arise in the future.
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 July 5, 2010. The Initial Claim Filing Date has been set by the Trust as January 5, 2011. All claims filed with the Trust between July 5, 2010 and January 5, 2011 will be deemed filed iwth 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.
