Important PECFA Claim Submittal Update

The PECFA Program’s longtime claim reviewer, Tim Prosa, is set to retire in early 2020. Tim will begin training Mae Friederich, the RR Program’s new PECFA Specialist LTE, on claim reviews starting January 13.

All electronic claims should now be sent to DNRRRPECFAClaims@wisconsin.gov. This will ensure that both Mae and Tim see all incoming claims and can process them as quickly as possible, and that claims will continue to be processed after Tim’s retirement.

Thank you for your cooperation.
