Please use the Centre Street entrance. If you plan to file a claim, or have already filed a claim and would like more information about the claim review process, or if you are a contractor against whom a claim has been filed, this workshop will provide valuable information to you. The workshop will help participants learn more about the Guaranty Fund and the claim process. Please note that we will not discuss specific claims during the workshop.
