SAN FRANCISCO, Calif. - PG&E Corporation and Pacific Gas and Electric Company (together 'PG&E') are sharing an important reminder that the Bankruptcy Court-approved deadline for filing claims against PG&E is today.
Claims in PG&E's Chapter 11 cases must be filed and received no later than today, October 21, 2019, at 5 p.m., known as the Bar Date. If any person or entity believes money is owed to them by PG&E from the period before PG&E filed for Chapter 11 on January 29, 2019, then they must file a Proof of Claim before the Bar Date.
The Bar Date, as well as the procedures for filing Proofs of Claim, apply to all claims against PG&E that arose before January 29, 2019, including from those who suffered any loss or injury resulting from the Northern California fires.
If those who are affected do not submit a Proof of Claim by this deadline, they may be barred from filing a claim against PG&E and give up rights to any payment or other compensation.
Claims can be filed online, at one of six PG&E Claim Service Centers (listed below), or by mail. Importantly, claims must be received by the bar date. So, if filing by mail, delivery must be completed before the Bar Date.
