If you’re owed money in a class-action settlement, we want you to be the first to know. Unlike product recalls — which just give customers refunds for products that are pulled from the shelves — these settlements are the result of lawsuits where customers band together to sue a company for an alleged mistake.

Chances are, you’re part of some groups that’ll get settlement money. Keep this page bookmarked to find out everything you need to know about these class-action settlements.

What is a class-action lawsuit, and why is a particular company involved in one? Do you qualify for a payout? How do you claim your settlement money? How much money will you get and when? We have all the details on the latest 2023 class-action settlements — things like who qualifies, how much you’ll get, and whether or not you’ll need proof to file a claim.
