Classes 5, 6.1 and 6.2 - Dow Corning Breast Implant Claimants:
The Plan requires that all claimants must first meet certain "threshold criteria" before their claim for benefits can be processed or paid by the Settlement Facility. This requirement is found in one of the Plan Documents called "Annex A to the Settlement Facility and Fund Distribution Agreement" in Section 5.01 - 5.02.
Section 5.01 requires that:
- You must not have released your Claim against Dow Corning or its Shareholders (or had such claim resolved by final judgment, dismissal or order); and
- You did not opt-out of the Settlement Facility; and
- You filed a Proof of Claim form on or before November 30, 1999 or you are an "NOI Claimant"; and
- You have one of the acceptable types of proof that Dow Corning made your breast implants
