Water Crisis Claims Marked “Deficient”

Local News

According to a lawyer of those affected by the 2014 water crisis, many people have received letters saying their claim is deficient. 

Approximately 9,000 deficiency letters were sent out. 

A deficiency letter means that some part of your claim submission was missing or inaccurate. 

Attorney Kevin Thompson tells 13 News, it could be as simple as some box not being checked or accidentally adding a zero at the end of an address. 

If you received a letter, Thompson said its an easy fix. 

“The letter will tell you exactly what you need to provide and when you need to provide it by.” 

The additional information must be submitted before July 26 or your claim will be denied.

Once those claims are processed, people should expect to see their checks around the beginning of August.
