Diffuse Mesothelioma Payment Scheme

The Diffuse Mesothelioma Payment Scheme

The Diffuse Mesothelioma Payment Scheme

From 1st April 2018, TopMark Claims Management Ltd is the appointed administrator of the Diffuse Mesothelioma Payment Scheme.

This scheme is designed to compensate people with Diffuse Mesothelioma who, either negligently or in breach of statutory duty, were exposed to asbestos by their employers, and who are unable to bring a claim for compensation against that employer or that employer's Employers' Liability insurer.

Should a sufferer of mesothelioma pass away, the scheme can also make payments to their eligible dependants.

Please take our Eligibility Questionnaire to verify whether your circumstances meet the scheme’s requirements.

Applicants, or persons acting on their behalf, can complete and submit an application form through this site.

Alternatively, to make an application by post or e-mail, the relevant forms can be downloaded here.

Once a fully completed application has been received, it will be assessed within four weeks. If an application is successful, the subsequent payment will be made within a further two weeks.

Assuming all requisite documentation has been provided at the outset, the entire application process should take six weeks.

Should you have any questions, please visit our Application & Appeals Process, FAQs, and Glossary & Useful Links pages.
