Class 7-Silicone Gel Breast Implant Fund

The Plan established a separate fund of money – $57.5 million – to make Expedited Release or Disease Payments to women who were implanted with certain types of silicone gel breast implants from 1976-1991.  To be eligible, a claimant must have been implanted with a silicone gel breast implant made by one of the manufacturers listed below.  Claimants who were implanted with a Dow Corning implant are not eligible to receive benefits from the class 7 fund. 

 

If you have a silicone gel breast implant implanted from 1976-1991 from one of the following, you are a Silicone Material Claimant
If you have a silicone gel breast implant implanted from 1976-1991 from any of the following, you are a Participating Foreign Gel Claimant

————————————————-

The deadline to file a claim for class 7 benefits was June 1, 2006.  No new claims are allowed.

 

Class 7 Payments

The Settlement Facility issued Expedited Release and Foreign Gel Claimant Payments to eligible claimants in the amount of $600.

Claimants in class 7 who applied for Disease and who "marshaled" their recoveries were sent a Disease Cash-Out Offer of $3,000.  Claimants who reject the Disease Cash-Out Offer will have their disease claim reviewed and, if approved, paid up to 40% of the Class 5 compensation grid.

Class 7 Processing Update

Class 7 is a limited fund that can not pay ANY disease claims until all Class 7 claims are processed and all cure deadlines have expired.  Because of this time constraint, the SF-DCT will perform an ACTD Discretionary review simultaneously with your Option 2 review when applicable.
