The United States Gypsum Asbestos Personal Injury Settlement Trust was established under Chapter 11 of the United States Bankruptcy Code to resolve all asbestos claims for which the USG Company has legal responsibility.
The Trust is organized to pay all valid asbestos personal injury claims against these defendants and certain related protected parties in accordance with the Trust Distribution Procedures ("TDP") approved by the bankruptcy court. The purpose of this website is to provide information to assist claimants and others in understanding the purpose of the USG Asbestos Trust and how the Trust resolves claims.
A copy of the applicable TDP is available on this site. Information regarding claim filing procedures will indicate, among other things, when and how claims may be filed with the Trust.
The current payment percentage for USG is 20% of the scheduled value for Expedited Review and 20% of the gross settlement value for Individual Review.
