When must a depositor file a claim?

A depositor must file a claim for insurance on the official claim form within 12 months from the date of closure of the financial institution. Official claim forms are available from the DIC. It is advisable that claims be filed as soon as possible after the announcement of closure. Claims not filed within the 12 month period are not eligible for deposit insurance. If the 12 month period has passed, a creditor’s claim by affidavit must then be filed with the Court-appointed Liquidator which may be the DIC. Liquidation claims are required to be filed for all classes of creditors: preferential, secured or unsecured.
