126 One Fund Boston Applications Received So Far as Deadline Looms

One Fund Boston funds will go to help the Boston Marathon victims.

As of Wednesday, 126 complete One Fund Boston applications had been submitted—a considerable increase as only a handful had been turned in a month ago, when fund administrators urged victims to apply.

“The applications will continue to be delivered throughout the day and up to the June 15 deadline. The submissions are being sent primarily via special overnight courier with some submissions coming in via U.S. mail. Most of the submitted applications are complete—those claimants whose applications are deficient are being contacted immediately as soon as the deficiency is determined,” Camille Biros, deputy administrator of the One Fund, told Patch.

While One Fund Boston administrator Ken Feinberg has repeatedly said that no amount of money will heal all the scars left from the bombings, the more than $ 45 million raised as of Wednesday morning will be distributed to many survivors.

“There was a tremendous outreach effort by the One Fund staff and the mayor’s office as well as MOVA [Massachusetts Office for Victim Assistance] to reach all potential claimants and encourage them to submit their claims. We are confident that we will receive claims for all of those individuals who were physically injured and from the families of the deceased,” Biros said. read more

Marathon Victims Pushed to Meet One Fund Boston June 15 Deadline

One Fund Boston funds will go to help the Boston Marathon victims.

One Fund Boston administrator Kenneth Feinberger is urging Boston Marathon bombing victims to get claims in before the June 15 deadine.

“You would be amazed at how people in grief, with all sorts of uncertainty about their lives, don’t file. File at the last minute. File claim forms written in crayon,”Feinberg told the Boston Herald.

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 read more
