Instructions for Completing Notice of Claim

A Notice of Claim form should be completed each time an individual files a claim or suffers a loss or injury to oneself or to that individual's personal property.

Completion of the Notice of Claim initiates the claim process with the Maryland State Treasurer's Office.

  1. For Name, address, phone number, include the complete name, address and telephone numbers (home/work). If a campus student or employee, include campus address and permanent address.
  2. Date of Loss refers to the date the incident occurred.
  3. Location of Loss refers to where the incident occurred.
  4. County usually refers to Prince George's County. If out-of-state, include state.
  5. State Agency Involved refers to the "University of Maryland, College Park".
  6. Amount of Damages is an estimated amount which may need to be determined.
  7. Include the name, address and telephone number of the individual that caused the loss, if that information is available.
