1. Overview

You may be able to get a payment if you’ve been diagnosed with the asbestos related disease, diffuse mesothelioma.

There are 2 types of payment you can claim for:

  • diffuse mesothelioma payments (the ‘2008 scheme’)
  • the Diffuse Mesothelioma Payment Scheme (DMPS)

You can claim DMPS if you can’t find the employer responsible for your contact with asbestos, or their insurer.
