RE: United Airlines Bankruptcy
We have been informed that United
Airlines has filed Chapter
11 Bankruptcy in the U.S. Bankruptcy
Court for the Northern District of Illinois, Eastern Division in Chicago.
United Airlines has a limited number of claims in North Carolina.
The current information available to the Industrial
Commission is that United Airlines has insurance coverage with Insurance
Company of the State of Pennsylvania, Post Office Box 35066, Richmond, Virginia,
23235-0066 for the period from July 16, 1995 through July 16, 2002. United
Airlines’ Bankruptcy Petition should not disrupt normal claims processing.
If any claimant does not receive benefits to which they are lawfully
entitled or should benefits awarded be suspended or terminated for unexplained
reasons, please notify the Industrial Commission. Questions or concerns
regarding United Airlines claims should be directed to: Stephen T. Gheen, Chief
Deputy Commissioner, 919-807-2540 or firstname.lastname@example.org.
Because of the limited number of claims potentially involved and the fact that
insurance coverage is applicable, this notice is not being transmitted to the
workers’ compensation trial bar individually.
Commission website (www.comp.state.nc.us)
will be updated as needed with additional information.
