200 One Fund Claims & Counting as Submission Deadline Passes

The deadline to submit claims to One Fund Boston passed on June 15, and the last few are still coming in. “We continue to receive claims that are timely filed – we are up to 200 – I expect we will receive deliveries all throughout the day and tomorrow that are timely filed,” said Camille Biros, deputy administrator of the One Fund, to Patch on Monday. More than $ 47 million had been raised as of Monday morning by corporate and individual donors, according to the One Fund Boston website. Biros said 188 submitted claims had been received as of June 14, adding she expects the total to rise by the end of Monday. “Payments are right on schedule to be made beginning June 30 (July 1 since June 30 is a Sunday). Donations continue to be received by the One Fund Boston,” added Biros. The three families who lost a loved one are expected to receive around $ 1 million each.  Next, those who suffered double amputations or more will receive funds, then single amputees, then those who required an overnight hospital stay. The final protocol for dispersing funds can be viewed on the One Fund site. Victims can read and download a Frequently Asked Questions section about One Fund Boston for filing claims.

20 Complete One Fund Boston Claims Received So Far

One Fund Boston administrators have received 20 completed claims as of early Thursday, as the June 15 deadline to submit claims quickly approaches. Last week One Fund Boston Administrator Kenneth Feinberg urged victims to submit claims, saying there had been only a few complete claims submitted. “We have received 20 completed claims to date. This is consistent with the rate of receipt for other programs we have administered – as we get closer to the deadline the numbers will increase dramatically,” said Camille Biros, Deputy Administrator of the Fund. “The intent of the Fund is to complete the reviews and to begin issuing payments as quickly as possible.” Biros added that Feinberg will meet with any potential claimant who wishes a face-to-face meeting with him. Funds are scheduled to start being distributed on June 30, with the three families who lost a loved one to receive around $ 1 million.  Next, those who suffered double amputations or more would receive funds, then single amputees, then those who required an overnight hospital stay. The final protocol for dispersing funds can be viewed on the One Fund site. Downloadable claim forms are available through the One Fund Boston website. Victims can read and download a Frequently Asked Questions section about One Fund Boston for filing claims. Help with completing One Fund forms is available by calling 866-298-2951 or going to the One Fund Boston website.  SOUTH END PATCH: Facebook | Twitter | E-mail UpdatesD South End Patch
