SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: Pursuant to Section 1705 of the Sudan Claims Resolution Act, GAO is conducting an audit and publishing this notice of our methodology for estimating potential lump sum catch-up payments to 9/11 victims, 9/11 spouses, and 9/11 dependents 1 who have eligible claims for payment from the United States Victims of State Sponsored Terrorism Fund (Fund), established in 2015 by the Justice for United States Victims of State Sponsored Terrorism Act (Terrorism Act).2 While the Terrorism Act, as amended, contains a provision for us to estimate these catch-up payments, it does not currently authorize such catchup payments to be made. The Fund is administered by a Special Master appointed by the Attorney General and supported by Department of Justice personnel.3 For purposes of the Fund, the term ‘‘claim’’ generally refers to a claim based on compensatory damages awarded to a United States person in a final judgment issued by a United States district court under State or Federal law against a foreign state that has been designated a state sponsor of terrorism and arising from acts of international terrorism.4 In general, a claim is determined eligible for payment from the Fund if the Special Master determines that the judgment holder (referred to as a ‘‘claimant’’) is a United States person, that the claim at issue meets the definition of claim above, and that the claim was submitted timely.5 The first round of payments was distributed in early 2017 and the second round in early 2019.6 As of March 2021, the Fund had allocated $1.075 billion for thirdround payments and was in the process of distributing payments on a rolling basis.7 As enacted, the Terrorism Act precluded claimants (generally 9/11 victims, spouses, and dependents) who had received an award from the 1 See 34 U.S.C. 20144(j)(10)–(14) (defining the terms ‘‘9/11 victim,’’ ‘‘9/11 spouse,’’ and ‘‘9/11 dependent,’’ among others); see also 28 CFR 104.2, 104.3. 2 Public Law 116–260, div. FF, tit. XVII, 134 Stat. 1182, 3293–3294, amending Public Law 114–113, div. O, tit. IV, 404, 129 Stat. 2242, 3007–3017 (classified as amended at 34 U.S.C. 20144(d)(4)(C)). 3 See 34 U.S.C. 20144(b)(1). 4 34 U.S.C. 20144(c)(2). 5 34 U.S.C. 20144(c)(1). 6 The Fund allocated $1.1 billion for initial-round payments and $1.095 billion for second-round payments.
