The Claims Division mission is to process, investigate, adjudicate, and negotiate the settlement of non-contractual claims against the Army filed at Fort Leavenworth.  Claims are processed for lost or damaged property, personal injury, death, disasters, and other costs arising from Army operations.  We are committed to our customers and have been recognized for the quality of our service by receiving the Army Judge Advocate General's Excellence in Claims Award thirteen times since its inception in 1996.
