Frequently Asked Questions:
- How Do I Know If I am Eligible to Participate in the Compensation Fund?
If you are able to show a drop in income during the year 2010, following the April 20th disaster, then you may meet eligibility requirements to participate in the compensation fund set aside by BP to pay claims. We will review your financial documentation, in conjunction with accounting professionals, in order to present your claim for losses suffered in the strongest manner possible.

Once all documentation is submitted in support of your claim, you may expect an answer in as few as ninety (90) days.
