Kaiser Asbestos Trust
The Kaiser Asbestos Personal Injury Trust was created in 2006 as a result of the confirmation of The Kaiser Aluminum & Chemical Corporation 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 Kaiser Aluminum & Chemical Corporation Asbestos Personal Injury Trust’s Amended Trust Distribution Procedures (the “TDP”).
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 December 18, 2006. The initial Claim Filing Date has been set by the Trust as June 18, 2007. All claims filed with the Trust between December 18, 2006 and June 18, 2007 will be deemed filed with 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.
