Reduced Judgment Fund Claim Processing Times
Several months ago, the Judgment Fund staff experienced resource shortages and system problems that resulted in extended processing times for Judgment Fund payments. Since that time, changes and improvements in these areas have resulted in more efficient processing and faster payment of claims. Consequently, we are announcing that average processing times for Judgment Fund claims have shortened from 8 to 12 weeks to 6 to 8 weeks. As further operational improvements take effect, we anticipate that these processing times will continue to decrease, and you will receive additional notifications as further reductions in processing time are realized.
Again, we thank you for your patience.
