Holocaust Era Claims Resolution

Claims

The International Commission on Holocaust Era Insurance Claims ("ICHEIC") was established in 1998 by the National Association of Insurance Commissioners ("NAIC"), in conjunction with several European insurers, European regulators, representatives of several Jewish organizations and the State of Israel. ICHEIC is charged with establishing a just process to collect and facilitate the insurers' processing of insurance claims from the Holocaust era. Signatory insurers agreed to process claims according to ICHEIC guidelines, which were negotiated and established by consensus among the ICHEIC membership.

ICHEIC is the first organization to offer Holocaust survivors and their heirs an avenue to pursue a claim against an insurance company at no cost. The Commission was created as a means of addressing the gaps and shortfalls of postwar compensation programs of the 1950s and 1960s and was intended to provide an opportunity for thousands of Holocaust survivors and their heirs to submit claims for the first time.

On March 30, 2004, ICHEIC began mailing $16 million in humanitarian payments to ICHEIC claimants in 60 countries. Claimants with questions concerning these humanitarian payments may wish to review the ICHEIC press release and Q and A scripts provided below.
