A letter has been mailed out to Compensation Creditors with respect to Qualifying Retroactive Lump-Sum Payment (“QRLSP“) forms for certain qualifying Compensation Claims. The letter provides details of a webinar that Representative Counsel and the Monitor will be hosting to provide further information on which Compensation Claims may be entitled to a QRLSP calculation. QRLSP forms will be sent out by Nortel with respect to distributions received in July 2017 and will not affect future distributions.
Please note that while you may receive a QRLSP form for your compensation claims, Morneau Shepell may also be sending you a separate QRLSP form for retroactive pension amounts. The letter that was sent to Compensation Creditors by Koskie Minsky does not address the QRLSP form from Morneau Shepell. You may qualify for a QRLSP form from Morneau Shepell with respect to your registered pension benefits and should contact them directly if you have any questions regarding your calculation.
The webinar will be held on December 7, 2017 at 10 a.m. (Toronto time) in English and at 2 p.m. (Toronto time) in French.
