The Settlement Program headed up by Claims Administrator Pat Juneau has reached another milestone. The Settlement Program announced in May that it had paid out more than $2 billion to businesses and individuals eligible in the settlement. In total, the Program as of May 6 had extended offers totaling $3.06 billion to thousands of eligible claimants. Juneau will file a more detailed report on the center’s progress with U.S. District Judge Carl Barbier. Juneau had this to say in a statement:
This is another milestone in the claims process. We started this new process in June of 2012 and in less than a year, we have reviewed claims and determined, by the settlement agreement, that over $3 billion in claims are eligible for payment.
