You are not required to participate in the claims process. If you wish to participate, you must submit a completed, signed Claim Form and Release to the Claims Administrator. Tenants should submit only one Claim Form per household.
Current tenants must submit a Claim Form and Release that is signed by every tenant currently on the lease or must explain why one or more tenants on the lease are unable to sign the Claim Form and Release.
Former tenants are not required to have every former tenant sign the Claim Form and Release.
Only tenants named on the lease are eligible for payment, but if you are in the process of contesting your status as a rent-regulated or rent-controlled tenant, and have asserted that you are entitled to a rent-stabilized lease, you may submit a Claim Form for consideration. The Claims Administrator or the NYAG may request that you submit additional information to evaluate your application.
