    I filed a claim back in Oct or Nov of 2016. Do you know if they have sent out the settlement checks yet? I have not received anything yet.

    ADMIN – Hi Brian,

    From their website
    Settlement Payments for timely valid claims not challenged by the Defendant are mailing March 31, 2017. Challenged and deficient claims that have been cured should be eligible for distribution beginning in late Spring 2017.

  2. Brian Wendt says:

    Do you know if the settlement checks have been sent out yet? Late spring is now over

    ADMIN – Hi Brian,

    If at this point you have not received payment I would send a certified letter to the admin asking if your documentation was deficient.
