BP announced on July 28 that they have paid $256 million in claims to people who have lost profits or income as a result of the oil spill.
Next month, BP said that they plan to pay at least another $60 million in advanced payments. This program has been created to help the people who have lost income because of the oil spill and need the payments to make up for what they have lost.
People receiving the payments include: fishermen, oyster harvesters, and the owners of charter boats. Since May, Bp has received over 133,000 claim checks and has issued nearly 83,000 back to people. The Deepwater Horizon rig has not leaked any oil since July 15 when it was capped.
