When you applied for settlement benefits, you were asked to answer one of five security questions:

Unless you have registered for automatic deposit of e-Transfers through your financial institution, your answer to that question is needed to deposit the e-Transfer into your account. An email was sent on January 27, 2023, from [email protected] containing your answer. If you cannot find the email, please check your junk folder. If you enter the wrong answer four times your payment will be locked.

Between November 2018 and March 2019, class members were able to apply for settlement benefits. Payments to approved class members were delayed as a result of certain class members appealing the outcome of their claims and a re-adjudication of certain claims.

Payments to approved class members started on October 28, 2022. All cheques were mailed on October 31, 2022. Initial Interac e-Transfers were sent in batches between October 28, 2022 and November 18, 2022.

A previous distribution was made to class members who were entitled to the minimum payment of $20 regardless of the outcome of class member appeals.
