PG&E agrees to extend fire claim deadline



Pacific Gas and Electric Company (PG&E) has agreed to extend by two months the deadline for fire victims to file claims against the company. The new court-approved deadline to file claims is Dec. 31 at 5 p.m. (Pacific Time). The deadline for filing claims is known as the Bar Date.

Lawyers for the victims asked to extend the original Oct. 21 deadline, according to the Associated Press.

Those with claims related to the Northern California fires prior to Jan. 29, 2019, are eligible to file through the extended deadline. Those fires include, but are not limited to: 37, Adobe, Atlas, Blue, Butte, Camp, Cascade, Cherokee, Ghost Ship, Honey, La Porte, Lobo, Maacama, McCourtney, Norrbom, Nuns, Partrick, Pocket, Point, Pressley, Pythian (a.k.a. Oakmont), Redwood, Sullivan, Sulphur and Tubbs.

If those who are affected do not submit a Proof of Claim by this extended deadline, they may be barred from filing a claim against PG&E and give up rights to any payment or other compensation.

Fire claims can be filed online at www.pgewildfireinfo.com, at one of six PG&E Claim Service Centers (listed below), or by mail. If filing by mail, delivery must be completed before Dec. 31.

Fire claims may be submitted in person at the following PG&E Claim Service Centers, Monday-Friday. 8:30 a.m.-5 p.m., except for public holidays.
