Who is the Claims Administrator?
The claims administrator is an independent company responsible for handling administrative duties for the class. This company will mail the class notice, receive claim forms, opt-out letters or exclusion forms, and answer basic questions. As well, they will distribute any funds and oversee the terms of the class settlement. The claims administrator's mailing address, phone number, email and website address are listed as part of the class notice.
Replacement or Reissue of Class Settlement Checks
The claims administrator will also handle the replacement of lost or misplaced checks, or the re-issue of a class settlement check if a class member's name has changed, is deceased or incarcerated. Any replacement or reissue of a settlement check must be handled timely, and in accordance with the terms designated in the class action settlement. Once the claim period has terminated and the time frame for cashing checks has expired, the claims administrator may not be able to re-issue checks, or honor checks that have not been cashed.
