If you want to receive a settlement payment, you need to follow the instructions on the notice form and submit a completed claim form online or by mail to receive a settlement payment. If you follow the instructions on the notice form and return a completed claim form by U.S. Mail or online, and the court grants final approval of the settlement, you will be mailed your settlement payment and be bound by the Settlement Agreement, including the release of claims. If required by law, you may also be sent a 1099 tax reporting form. If you do nothing, you will not receive a payment.
(2) Exclude yourself from the settlement and receive no money. If you do not want to be legally bound by the settlement, you must exclude yourself from the settlement by April 23, 2022.

Your written request for exclusion must include your full name, address, telephone number, the last four digits of your Social Security Number, a statement that you wish to be excluded from the settlement, and it must be signed by you.
