Consistent with an opinion issued May 11, 2017 by the Kentucky Bar Association that the preparation and filing of a Form 110-Agreement as to Compensation constitutes the practice of law under SCR 3.020, the Department of Workers' Claims will no longer accept Form 110 settlement agreements prepared by individuals who are not licensed to practice law in the Commonwealth of Kentucky.
In light of the mandate of HB 377 that all assets and liabilities of the Coal Workers' Pneumoconiosis Fund be transferred to KEMI as of July 1, 2017, and in order to facilitate the orderly completion of the transfer, the CWP Fund, as administered by the Department of Workers' Claims, will not consider requests for participation received after May 31, 2017. KEMI will consider requests for participation beginning July 1, 2017. Those requests should be sent to cwpfund@KEMI.com.

Due to ongoing development of the capacity of the Litigation Management System ("LMS") to receive and process settlement agreements in electronic format, the Department of Workers' Claims will continue, until further notice, to accept Form 110 Settlement Agreements in paper form subsequent to July 1, 2017.
