    FY20 Claims Activity Report/Statement of Inactivity Update: This report has not been requested yet and the forms are not available at this time.  We hope to be ready for this data call in the next couple of weeks – hopefully early in December. The due date each year is dependent on when we request the data so it varies some from year to year. We intend to give at least 45 days from the date we request the data as a due date – possibly more for this report due to the holidays and COVID work environments.  Thanks for your patience.
