The General Settlement Fund is seeking the heirs of deceased applicants

The majority of the payments compensating losses of assets have already been made. However, there are cases in which the applicant passed away before receiving the final payment and in which neither heirs nor contact persons are known to the General Settlement Fund.

If you are entitled to inherit or if you are the representative of the estate of a deceased person who had filed an application with the General Settlement Fund, we kindly ask you to send an email containing the following information to

  • Name of the deceased
  • Date of birth of the deceased
  • Last place of residence of the deceased
  • Your name, date of birth and relationship to the deceased
