As 2022 draws to a close, we would like to take the opportunity to recognize your perseverance throughout this process as we have sought to finalize the claims administration phase of this class action. Our goal remains that each Eligible Class Member receives their compensation.
Approximately 99% of the total number of claims received have been processed and notified of their eligibility under the terms of the settlement. The balance of the applications remains in process and require additional documentation to determine whether they meet the settlement criteria. The Claim Statistics Table has been updated monthly with the latest numbers throughout the past year and will continue to be the source for regular updates in 2023.
The Administrator continues to work diligently to ensure that reviews of the remaining applications are completed as soon as possible.
We wish everyone peace and comfort in the coming weeks.
