ENROLLMENT: You now may enroll claimants in the Program. To enroll a claimant, you need to submit a three-part Opt In Package to the Claims Administrator by using your secure online Portal. The required components of the Opt In Package differ slightly for claimants with a pending lawsuit (“Filed Claims”) and those with no pending lawsuit (“Unfiled Claims”), as shown in this table:

 

Opt In Package Components
  Form Filed Claims Unfiled Claims
1 Notice of Intent to Opt In Form Yes
2 Release Yes
3 Stipulation of Dismissal Yes No
4 Declaration of Counsel No Yes

 

When you access the Notice of Intent to Opt In Form and the Release through your Portal, you will see that the information you entered for each of your clients during the Registration process is prepopulated and appears on the forms. If you wish to make edits to that information, you will have the opportunity to do so during the Enrollment stage.
