Most processors have stopped taking on BP Claims, we haven`t but you have to have all your information together and be ready to expedite it directly over to us.
Our number is 1-800-BP-CLAIM if you need Help
If you want to call the settlement directly call 1-866-992-6174 or go to DeepWaterHorizonSettlements.com, we encourage that too.
If you would like help processing your claim after the 8th we will be happy to help you, but you need to be filed with Deep Water that is the most important step right now.
The attorneys we work with are available if your claim documentation is in order.
Recently we have seen lots of emails from the heads of the PSC that definitively speak about having the claims that are being entered at this time to be complete, we agree with that, but in speaking with one of our liaisons at Deep Water he wrote us this.
You must submit a completed and signed Claim Form on or before Midnight (Prevailing Central Time) on June 8, 2015. You should submit all required documentation in support of your claim at that time. If the Claims Administrator finds that your claim is incomplete for a Registration Form, or documentation necessary to complete the review of the claim, the Settlement Program will notify you of that determination by email or mail at the address you provided in your Claim Form. That notification letter will provide you with instructions for how to make your claim complete and will provide a specific deadline by which you must respond.
Keep in mind how the time of filing a Claim Form is measured. The Claims Administrator applies these rules:
- Claim Form filed online on a DWH Portal or by email: Timely if submitted online or emailed by midnight Central Prevailing Time on the filing deadline date.
- Claim Form filed in a Claimant Assistance Center: Timely if done in a Claimant Assistance Center before the Center closes on the deadline date. The Claimant Assistance Centers will remain open until midnight prevailing central time (1:00 a.m. eastern time) on June 8, 2015, to accept claim forms and documentation submitted in support of claims. After June 8, 2015, you may continue to visit the Claimant Assistance Centers during normal business hours from 9:00 a.m. to 5:00 p.m. local time until June 19, 2015, on which date the centers will permanently close to the public.
- Claim Form filed by U.S. Mail: Timely if postmarked on or before the filing deadline date.
- Claim Form filed by personal delivery: Timely if delivered on or before the filing deadline date.
The key word here being should, so in an effort to accommodate as many of you as possible, if your business claim passes our screening process, we will do everything we can, to get your Business Claims in before the deadline.
We strongly suggest that You ALL check the status of your BP Claims by going here, as many claims were dropped during the stay, many of you were refiled, some with your knowledge, but many with out your knowledge, by the Groups handling your claims.
Many were just dropped.
Read the articles below about The Refiles.
Many of you just don`t know, and the best place to go is the check your status page on the Deep Water Horizon Settlement website.
If you are unsure, contact whoever is processing your claims, I strongly suggest you check there first.
However if you did not opt out, and feel you have a bp claim that is viable, and you have checked you status, you may want to file your claim yourself before the 8th.
These decisions are yours, and I am not an Attorney.
Best of Luck and God`s Speed.
BP Claims Deadline is August 2013
Eventually you just have enough of something and need to shout it from the Roof Tops. If I see one more ad on T.V. saying you are about to run out of time to file your BP Claims I am going to scream. Some Attorneys and others, are distorting the truth, and trying to create a false sense of urgency when it comes to filing your BP Claims. The Deadline to file your BP Claims is August 2013, and in my opinion it should be extended. The fact is we did not know the effects from the Valdez Disaster for 3 years, so to create a BP Claims Deadline that ends in 3 years of the original disaster is ludicrous. The GCCF has now admitted that certain claims should receive payouts up to 4 times the 2010 losses, we are just beginning to understand the long term effects.
BP Claims Update: More GCCF Offices to Close
That`s right the GCCF is getting ready to close more offices, the GCCF in it`s ultimate wisdom is closing more offices in the near future. They have been laying of staff for some time now and condensing their operations. The GCCF is pairing down their operations as BP Claims are not coming in, in the numbers they once did. The BP Claims Intake process is winding down, but expect the process to evolve. Mind you there are hundreds of thousands that still need to be helped that have been declared deficient, denied or stalled at the GCCF, and something needs to be done with them. I have heard several possible scenarios of what is to come, but it is still to early to tell.

BP Claims and Shrimpers Claims
Breaking news has been released that 53% of the gulf shrimp that were tested contained PAH’s (polycyclic aromatic hydrocarbons). There has been consumption warnings issued, and shrimping continues to be affected drastically. We are just beginning to realize how much the environment has been impacted since the oil spill and you can be sure we will continue to hear even more devastating news. Ken Feinberg has been reprimanded by Capitol Hill for the way has chosen to handle the BP Claims process. He inferred the shrimpers would get some much needed relief.
With BP Claims deadlines approaching and BP claims offices closing, the Gulf Coast Claims Facility has prolonged a state of disarray in the BP Claims process. Thousands of people are stuck in the delay or deny tactic the GCCF has decided to continue on those directly affected by the Oil Spill.
What we found out about the BP Claims process.
The GCCF has made the claims process almost unbearable for those who suffered loss from the oil spill. We have acquired a much better understanding of what is going on inside the GCCF and how the claims process is working behind the closed doors of the GCCF. This has given us a much better understanding of what exactly the GCCF is looking for when processing your claim.
Breaking News: BP Claims Updates.
BP and the GCCF are trying to skate around BP Claims Consultants and have a more direct exchange with individuals filing claims on their own. In doing this the GCCF is aiming to interact only with individuals themselves on their settlement offers and decisions in hopes that the individuals will take low ball offers because of their lack of knowledge and advice from a professional. Can you blame them? Claimants must sign and agree that a BP Claims Consultant be made aware of any new information or decisions being made. This does not include Attorney’s at this time. If you would like to have your claims consultant included in your decision of settlement be sure to send the signed document stating that all information on your claim should also be sent to your BP Claims Adjuster. Do not take a low ball offer without seeking advice from a professional.
Here is how it reads:
Notices and Payments. The GCCF no longer will send letters on claims determinations
or payments to a Claims Preparer. Instead, the GCCF will send all letters and payments
directly to the claimant. If a claimant has submitted to the GCCF a document signed by
the claimant authorizing a Claims Preparer to receive information on the claimant’s
claim, the GCCF will send a copy of each letter to that Claims Preparer.
We will help you with your BP Claims.
