Claims Related to PG&E's Central Coast Seismic Imaging Project (CCSIP)

If you believe you have incurred a loss caused by PG&E's Central Coast Seismic Imaging Project (CCSIP), you have the option of filing a claim with the company. Under PG&E's existing claims process, an individual or business may file a claim form with supporting documentation.

In order to evaluate a claim, the applicant will need to submit support documents such as official fish tickets submitted to the California Department of Fish and Game (CDFG) or other financial data such as tax records or revenue/expense statements in order to demonstrate the loss.

Our Claims Policy and Process

At PG&E, it is our policy to respond to claims promptly and fairly. To evaluate your claim, we must determine:

  • How the incident happened
  • Whether or not we caused it
  • The extent of your damages
  • What the law considers fair compensation

We evaluate each claim based on the information you provided and our
investigation, which may involve:

  • The review of records
  • Interviews of employees or witnesses
  • A technical evaluation

The length of this process varies depending on the magnitude of the loss. Our goal is to reach a decision on your claim within 30 days of receipt. However, if there are complex issues involved or if we need additional information from the claimant, the process may take longer. When our investigation is complete, we will either call you or send you a letter informing you of our decision.
