  • If you are amending a claim for any reason, be sure to check the “Amends” box on the claim form.

  • If there is supporting documentation for your claim, select “Yes” at Item #7.
  • If you are entering zero the amount owed because the amount is unknown at the time of filing the claim, be sure to use 0.00. The form will not accept any other combination. Enter a comment to explain the zero amount.
