BP Settlement Claimants can Now find Out Their Status
We have been hearing from many of you, that you don`t know where your BP Claims stand. Most of the Claims are with Attorneys, though some are with Consultants, and the answers that claimants are receiving are vague at best. Some Groups have created client portals so the clients know exactly where they stand, we applaud them.
People need to know where their claim is at, in the process, whether you are with a CPA, an Adjuster, or an Attorney, now there is a solution.
We have been lobbying the DeepWater Horizon Settlement Leadership for over a month for this, clients can NOW check their status even if they are with an Attorney. We would still like to see the claimants get more details as to what has been filed for them.
Here are the instructions from the Settlement Fund.
Claimants and other users are now able to check the status of their claims without having to create a login and password for the DWH Portal by using the new Check Status Portal. The Check Status Portal only shows current statuses. The Portal does not allow users to view or respond to Notices, upload documents, or submit Registration Forms and Claim Forms.
Users can login to the Check Status Portal through the DWH website (www.deepwaterhorizoneconomicsettlement.com). To access the Check Status Portal, users must click the “Check My Status” link in the middle of the Home page.
To log on, the user must enter a DWH Claimant ID and the last four digits of the claimant’s Taxpayer ID. The user must also type the security code shown on the screen. After a user successfully logs on to the Check Status Portal, he or she will see three sections: Claimant Information, Claimant Status, and Claim Status.
For security purposes, the Claimant Information section will only show the DWH Claimant ID and the last four digits of the claimant’s Taxpayer ID. The Claimant Status section shows the claimant’s overall status and the Claim Status section shows the status for each claim. The Status column shows the current Status or Notice. The Status Date column shows the date the Claims Administrator issued the Status or Notice. The Response Deadline shows the date by which the claimant must respond to a Notice. Not all Notices have Response Deadlines. If the Response Deadline column is blank, the claimant does not need to respond. You can also call them directly at 1-866-992-6174
