When a claim has been approved for payment, the Settlement Facility issues an Award letter that is sent to the claimant and, if she is represented, a copy is also sent to the attorney of record. The Settlement Facility sends payment requests to its Paying Agent (Wells Fargo) on approximately the last Friday of each month. It takes up to fourteen days for checks to be issued and mailed by the Paying Agent.
It is very important that you keep the SFDCT informed when you move. Failure to provide us with your new address can delay your claim processing, may cause your benefit check to be returned, or may prevent you from receiving a premium payment.
