(a) A claimant determined to be a qualified recipient under this Part shall receive lump-sum compensation in the amount determined by this subsection from funds appropriated to the Department of State Treasurer for these purposes. Except as provided by the succeeding sentence, the amount of compensation for each qualified recipient is the sum of ten million dollars ($10,000,000) divided by the total number of qualified recipients, and all such payments shall be made on June 30, 2015. The State Treasurer shall reduce the ten million dollars ($10,000,000) by holding out a pro-rata amount per claimant for any cases in which there has not been a final determination of the claim on June 30, 2015. Payments made to persons determined to be qualified claimants after that date shall be made upon such determination, and if after final adjudication of all claims there remains a balance from the funds held out, they shall be paid pro-rata to all qualified claimants.
(b) If any claimant shall die during the pendency of a claim, or after being determined to be a qualified recipient, any payment shall be made to the estate of the decedent.
(c) A qualified recipient may assign compensation received pursuant to subsection (a) of this section to a trust established for the benefit of the qualified recipient. (2013-360, s. 6.18(a).)
