  4. Tammy says:

    We had Farmers for our auto and home. The rates kept going higher and higher and the only explanation is that everyone’s insurance is going up, so pay.

    I got a check from farmers but the the check is past the 120 days stated on check. My relative had sat on mail and just rece ntly gave to me. I there any way i can get another check issue or is it to late? if can how?

    ADMIN – Hi Chris,

    I don’t think you can. Often settlements either have a secondary distribution for unclaimed funds or give the money away to charity.

  13. Hannah M Brown says:

    Dear Sir, I recently received a letter in regards to the Settlement a couple of days ago. I’m unsure of what to do at this point. If I’m entitled to the settlement payment I would like to be compensated and not credited to Famers Texas auto premium billing account.

    • Angelica (Admin) says:

      Hi, Hannah. Thanks for your message. However, since we are only a newspaper of class action settlements, we have no direct connection to the cases we report about. As soon as we hear of open settlements, we post the news here; what happens to the settlement after that, we no longer post about. It’s up to our subscribers to follow up directly with their respective claims/settlement administrators and/or check directly on the settlement website (always linked above) for updates. Hope you eventually got in touch with the settlement admin.

  14. Carla L Moore says:

    I have a check from the settlement that has not been cashed. It is dated 4/20/2016. My husband died in 2018, check was found in his files uncashed. May I get it reissued?
    Thank you

    • Angelica (Admin) says:

      Hi Carla,

      Condolences on your husband’s passing. As for your query, I’m afraid you’ll have to contact the Claims Administrator directly for that info. We are only a class action newspaper, not the settlement administrator of this lawsuit. Please see the “Contact” details above. Best of luck.

  15. Karen Blanton says:

    Can this settlement still payout if we just found some paperwork from December 6, 2011.

    • Angelica (Admin) says:

      Hi, Karen. As a rule, if anyone misses the claims deadline, they can no longer file a claim for that particular settlement.  As a last resort, however, we recommend that eligible claimants check the National Association of Unclaimed Property Administrators (“NAUPA”) website via www.unclaimed.org for updates on when late claimants can claim their funds — unless the Settlement Administrator already disbursed any unclaimed portion of the fund via charity donations. Please try to contact the Settlement Administrator directly, if needed. The details are provided above; just scroll up. Thank you, and best of luck.
