If you have an existing claim, you can continue to check the status of your claim and respond to Deficiency or Ineligibility Notices. If you plan to provide additional information to complete your claim submission, please do so before 1/31/2020. After 1/31/2020, the Wildfire Assistance Program will continue to evaluate only existing claims.

This Program is separate from the PG&E Chapter 11 bankruptcy cases. Submitting a claim to the Wildfire Assistance Program is different than submitting a claim in the bankruptcy cases. Any amount that you receive from the Wildfire Assistance Program will be deducted from any payment you may receive as a creditor/claimant in the PG&E bankruptcy cases. The Bar Date for the PG&E Chapter 11 bankruptcy cases is December 31, 2019.
