Such notice of claim shall include, but not be limited to, a detailed statement describing the disability claim and supporting documentation including relevant medical and vocational rehabilitation records. Failure to timely file a notice of claim with the manager shall require the involuntary dismissal of any complaint against the industrial special indemnity fund regarding the claim for benefits which the party seeking to join the industrial special indemnity fund may cause to be filed with the industrial commission. The manager shall evaluate the notice of claim and shall approve or deny the claim or make an offer of settlement within the sixty (60) day period. If, in the discretion of the manager, the notice of claim is determined to be incomplete, the manager may, upon written notice to the party seeking to join the industrial special indemnity fund, extend the time period for evaluation of the claim for a maximum of thirty (30) days in order to request the necessary documents and records. The manager shall approve or deny the claim or make an offer of settlement within the extended period.
