entity shall be filed within the time otherwise provided in this
part. A claim not so filed is barred, including any lien imposed for
the claim.
   (b) As used in this chapter, "public entity" has the meaning
provided in Section 811.2 of the Government Code, and includes an
officer authorized to act on behalf of the public entity.




19201.  (a) Notwithstanding any other statute, if a claim of a
public entity arises under a law, act, or code listed in subdivision
(b):
   (1) The public entity may provide a form to be used for the
written notice or request to the public entity required by this
chapter. Where appropriate, the form may require the decedent's
social security number, if known.
   (2) The claim is barred only after written notice or request to
the public entity and expiration of the period provided in the
applicable section. If no written notice or request is made, the
claim is enforceable by the remedies, and is barred at the time,
otherwise provided in the law, act, or code.
