The Claims Office at USASA, Fort Dix processes Army Tort and Affirmative Claims for New Jersey and Eastern Pennsylvania. The office adjudicates Tort claims for personal injury or damage to property caused by the negligent acts or omissions of Army personnel. In addition, the office pursues Affirmative claims against third parties who damage Army property or cause injury to Soldiers or their family members resulting in medical care at government expense.
The local office no longer adjudicates Personnel claims from Soldiers, their family members, and eligible Army civilian employees for damage to or loss of property during government shipment or storage and for certain other instances of damage or loss that are incident to service.
If you suffer a loss or damage incident to service you must file directly with the Center for Personnel Claims Support (CPCS), Fort Knox, KY by submitting an online claim at http://www.JAGCNet.army.mil/Pclaims. The CPCS may be reached by phone at 502-626-3000 or via email at: firstname.lastname@example.org.
