If you are a Class Member who received a Notice via postcard and you want to get a payment, do nothing and you will automatically receive a pro rata share of the Settlement Fund, which Class Counsel anticipates will be approximately $261. Your check for a pro rata shares of the Settlement Fund will be sent to the postal address identified in the Notice you received. If you have changed addresses or are planning to change addresses prior to April 12, 2023, you can complete and submit a change of address form on the Settlement Website. If you wished to receive your payment via PayPal or Venmo, you could have done so by submitting an Election Form on the Settlement Website. The deadline to submit an Election Form has passed. We estimate payment will be sent out on May 25, 2023.
