114th Cong., approved December 23, 2016) (``Act''), the Foreign Claims

    This program is open to two categories of claimants--(1) survivors 
of ``compensable Guam decedents'' and (2) ``compensable Guam victims.'' 
The first category includes survivors (i.e., the spouse, children, or 
parents) of a Guam resident who died as a result of the attack and 
occupation of Guam by Imperial Japanese forces during World War II, or 
incident to the liberation of Guam by U.S. forces, and whose death 
would have been eligible for compensation under the Guam Meritorious 
Claim Act of 1945. The second category, ``compensable Guam victims,'' 
includes individuals who, as a result of the attack and occupation of 
Guam by Imperial Japanese forces during World War II or incident to the 
liberation of Guam by U.S. forces, suffered any of the following: Rape 
or serious personal injury (such as loss of a limb, dismemberment, or 
paralysis), forced labor or personal injury (such as disfigurement, 
scarring, or burns), forced march, internment, and hiding to evade 
internment. Both compensable Guam victims and survivors of compensable 
Guam decedents must have been living on the date of enactment of the 
Act (December 23, 2016) to be eligible for payments.
    Any person wishing to file a claim must request and complete an 
official claim form. Completed claim forms and supporting documentation 
must be submitted no later than June 20, 2018.

regulations, which are published in Chapter V of Title 45, Code of 
Federal Regulations (45 CFR 500 et seq.). In particular, attention is 
directed to subsection 500.3(c) of these regulations which, based on
