Claims Division

The Claims Division provides support to potential claimants from Fort Knox, as well as the States of Indiana, Michigan, Ohio, and the eastern two-thirds of Kentucky. This support includes notifying claimants of procedures involved in filing claims for damage to household goods and privately owned vehicles shipped at government expense; filing claims that have arisen due to unusual or unforeseen circumstances, such as natural disasters, acts of God, vandalism and thefts on the military installation; and reviewing and approving claims for damage to property and personal injury, which are a result of negligently performed military activities. The office also recovers funds from the carrier industry for damage to household goods and from third parties where the third party's actions are responsible for the medical care provided by the United States to injured Soldiers and family members.
