To all Realtors out there concerning there NRA/BP/GCCF claims...
I'm not a Realtor, but wanted to pass on this information that I received this morning 3/18/2011.
The following is a small quoted section of info received while working on my business claim. I hope that it helps.
"GCCF originally denied realtor claims for loss of income. Feinburg eventually caved into pressure to pay them. Instead of having GCCF handle the realtor claims, he had BP do a separate fund for them and had another organization (NRA) execute the program. That program was a one-time benefit and had a cap, just like the Rig Workers Assistance Fund. Now that the NRA’s funds have been exhausted, GCCF is going to take over the claims process for realtors. According to the GCCF representative I spoke to today, they will officially begin reviewing realtor claims in about two weeks."
