Claims for property damage and/or personal injury or wrongful death caused by the negligence of a government employee acting within the scope of employment are payable under the Federal Tort Claims Act or the Military Claims Act. A claim must be presented to the Tort Claims Unit or other appropriate federal agency within 2 years of accrual.
The proper format for filing a claim is a completed Standard Form 95. By federal law, we have six months from the date the claim is properly presented to take action on the claim. In order for us to adjudicate your claim fairly and quickly, please fill out the SF-95 according to the DoN Tort Claims Unit Claims Package.
