Terrebonne Parish President Michel Claudet would like to remind residents of Terrebonne Parish affected by the recent oil spill in the Gulf of Mexico to file a claim with the Gulf Coast Claims Facility (GCCF) if they have sustained economic damages as a result of the spill. All resident s that have economic damage must obtain a new claim number and fill out a new claim form prior to November 23, 2010.
Claims can be made by: visiting the GCCF office located at 814 Grand Caillou Rd Suites 2 & 3(8:00 am to 7:00pm 7 days a week), calling 1-800-916-4893, or by visiting www.GulfCoastClaimsFacility.com.
Everyone is further reminded that if you have previously filed a claim with BP, all of the information included in your claim as well as the documents submitted have now been transferred to the GCCF. Although the GCCF now has the documents and information you submitted to BP, you must complete a GCCF Claim Form in order to apply for an Emergency Advance Payment or a Final Payment from the GCCF. Once this form has been submitted, you will be assigned a new GCCF Claimant Identification Number. It is important to note that you may submit a claim seeking an Emergency Advance Payment through November 23, 2010 and you may submit a claim for Final Payment through August 23, 2013.
