About the ZAI Trust

The ZAI Trust was created for the benefit of homeowners with the ZONOLITE brand of vermiculite attic insulation. Specifically, Trust funds are used to reimburse homeowners a portion of their cost to remove or contain Zonolite attic insulation. See FAQ's.

In order to be eligible for reimbursement a claimant must be able to show:

1- That vermiculite is the Zonolite Brand. This is called the Product Identification (PID) requirement AND

2- How much was paid to have the vermiculite removed or contained. This is called the Expense Requirement.

Assuming a claimant meets the PID and Expense Requirement he/she may receive a reimbursement contribution of 55% of the abatement costs with a maximum reimbursement amount of $4,125.00. For example, if a claimant spent $7,500 removing and replacing the insulation, he/she is potentially eligible for the maximum reimbursement of $4,125. If he/she spent $3,000 for abatement and re-insulation, you are potentially eligible for reimbursement of $1,650 (55% of $3,000).
