    Frequently Asked Questions

    Q: When will I receive a refund check for my share of the net settlement fund?

    A: Checks will be issued in July 2018.  If you filed a timely proof of claim, you should receive your refund check in July or August.


    Q: I filed a timely proof of claim, but I received a credit against my account on my latest bill.  Why did this happen?

    A: If you had an outstanding balance on your account as of March, your pro rata share of the net settlement fund was applied first to that balance.  Anything left over will be delivered in the form of a check.


    Q: I did not file a proof of claim, and I recently sold my property.  Can I now file a claim and receive a refund check?

    A: Unfortunately, no.  If you did not file a timely proof of claim, your pro rata share of the net settlement fund was applied as a credit against your account, which is tied to the property.  If you are in the process of selling your property, you may wish to negotiate with the buyer to allocate the credit to you as part of the sale price.
