Frequently Asked Questions

  1. Why did I receive an initial payment?

    Awards were provided to class members who were insured by State Farm and had non-OEM crash parts installed on or specified for their vehicles (or received compensation based on the value of those parts) between July 28, 1987, and February 24, 1998.

  2. Why did I receive another payment/check?

    The Court determined that it was economically feasible to make a further distribution to the Class using uncashed awards from the initial disbursement.

  3. Why didn’t I receive a second award?

    If you were sent an initial award payment in this Settlement but did not cash that award, you were not eligible for a second award.

  4. Can I get my supplemental/second award reissued?

    The opportunity to request reissue of supplemental awards has passed. Uncashed supplemental awards will be escheated to the last known address of the Class Member.

    Although specific dates are not available, it is expected that the respective states will possess uncashed supplemental awards by the end of 2023.

    Please visit your states' "Unclaimed Property" website for more information.

  5. Can I get my initial award reissued?

    Initial awards were disbursed in 2019. The opportunity to negotiate an initial award has passed and all un-negotiated initial awards have been reallocated for supplemental awards.

  6. How were second/supplemental award amounts determined?

    Your supplemental award is your share of the supplemental Net Settlement Fund. Supplemental awards were determined by dividing uncashed checks from the initial disbursement by the number of class members eligible for a second disbursement. All eligible class members were calculated to receive the same supplemental award amount.
