(1) Specify the information required to be included in a claim;

(2) Provide a mailing address to which the claim is to be sent;

(3) State the deadline for receipt of the claim, which may not be less than 120 days after the date the notice is received by the claimant;

(4) State that the claim will be barred if not received by the deadline; and

(5) Unless the limited partnership has been throughout its existence a limited liability limited partnership, state that the barring of a claim against the limited partnership will also bar any corresponding claim against any general partner or person dissociated as a general partner which is based on § 29-704.04.

(c) A claim against a dissolved limited partnership shall be barred if the requirements of subsection (b) of this section are met and:

(1) The claim is not received by the specified deadline; or

(2) In the case of a claim that is timely received but rejected by the dissolved limited partnership, the claimant does not commence an action to enforce the claim against the limited partnership within 90 days after the receipt of the notice of the rejection.

(d) This section shall not apply to a claim based on an event occurring after the effective date of dissolution or a liability that is contingent on that date.
