How do I file a claim against the estate of Florida Workers?
The Receiver's claim filing deadline of November 15, 1999 has passed.
In order for a claim against the estate of Florida Workers to be considered timely-filed, completed proof of claim forms and completed W9 forms had to be submitted and postmarked by November 15, 1999.
If you believe that your proof of claim form should be considered timely-filed, you may submit supporting documentation to the Receiver to accept your proof of claim form as timely-filed. With appropriate supporting documentation, Chapter 631, Florida Statutes also gives you the right to petition the Receivership court (Second Judicial Circuit Court, Tallahassee, Leon County, Florida, Case Number 98-3962) to accept your claim as timely-filed.
Can I file a proof of claim form in the Florida Workers estate after the filing deadline? Will it be considered late-filed?
Yes, you may file a proof of claim. However, any proof of claim form postmarked after November 15, 1999 will be processed as late-filed.
