The Kentucky Tobacco Settlement Trust Corp. has posted the list of individuals that will receive Phase II tobacco settlement payments later this year.
The payee list is made available to provide Phase II applicants and recipients assurances that they are on the list to be paid in the Dec. 30, 2004 distribution. This year Kentucky's estimated share of the Phase II trust is $125.6 million.

Now individuals can simply go the Phase II Web site at http://tobaccotrust.ky.gov to ensure they are on the list.
