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. 6 Public Law 116–69, div.
