As we enter the last month of the 3rd quarter of 2020, the Office of Congressman San Nicolas wished to provide an update on federal War Claims payments.

"The U.S. Treasury has been doing an excellent job processing claims as soon as they are adjudicated and their payment details certified by the claimant," opened Congressman San Nicolas. "To date 485 adjudicated claims are still awaiting claimant responses  on their payment certifications, and we urge our claimants to do so in order for Treasury to process their payment," Congressman San Nicolas added.

With 3,716 total claims and 2,459 adjudicated, the Congressman remains optimistic that the Foreign Claims Settlement Commission (FCSC) will complete all adjudications by the end of the year.

"The FCSC has been tracking to clear large batches of claims at this stage, likely because of similarities to prior award determinations that have set precedence in the process," explained Congressman San Nicolas. "Allowing them to do their job free of political interference is finally allowing them to move faster for the benefit of everyone," Congressman San Nicolas added.

Claimants who have received adjudication notices and need further assistance are encouraged to contact the Congressman's Office at 671-475-6453 or email at michael.sannicolas@mail.house.gov.

"In these especially stressful times, we thank the people for their continued patience as we bring this to a close, and for the extra effort of our federal partners who are facing extraordinary demand," Congressman San Nicolas concludes.
