The Court held hearings on final approval on February 1 and June 14, 2018, and extended the claims filing deadline to July 19, 2018 for claims for credit monitoring and alternative compensation. That deadline has now passed. Settlement Class Members can still file claims for Out-of-Pocket Costs. The Court expects to rule on final settlement approval by the end of July, 2018. No settlement benefits, including Credit Services, Alternative Compensation, or Fraud Resolution Services, will be available until after the Effective Date. If the Court approves the settlement at the end of July, 2018, and there is no appeal, then the earliest possible Effective Date will be the end of August, 2018. Please check back at the end of August 2018 to determine whether the Effective Date has occurred.
