Household Assistance Payment Approved
On Saturday, January 31, 2015, the General Council of the Seminole Nation of Oklahoma
approved Tribal Resolution 2015-06 which directs the Office of Special Trustee to disburse
settlement proceeds ($12,500,000) held in Trust account number JA7061693 to all Seminoles
by blood born on or prior to May 6, 2013 in the amount of $600 each.
Enactment of TR 2015-06 is just the first step in the process for distribution of the payments
authorized therein. The distribution process will involve a series of steps, the first and foremost
of which is the determination of a final list of persons eligible to receive the $600 payment. The
amount of time it will take to prepare the final list of eligible recipients is uncertain due in part
to the authorizing language of TR 2015-06. For that reason, the timeframe within which
recipients will begin receiving payments is undetermined. Updates on the payment distribution
will be posted on the Seminole Nation website as they become available.
In the interim, we encourage members to provide the Tribal Enrollment Office (405-257-7244
or 405-257-7242) with their most current address and contact information using the attached
update form. While information is being gathered for the payment eligibility list, telephone
updates will no longer be accepted.

Community Survey Results
The Seminole Nation conducted Community Input Surveys from December 2013 through April 2014 concerning the settlement money.
The survey wanted to identify the needs within the Seminole Nation membership to assist in setting program goals and budget priorities over the next several years.
There were a total of 168 surveys completed and turned in. In the surveys tribal members had the opportunity to submit extensive written documents.
The input surveys asked four questions and there were list of categories to rate Extremely Important, Important, Not Important, and Does not apply. There was also space to write-in categories and rate them also.
