Emails contain a ‘Claim Payment’ link. You need to click the ‘Claim Payment’ link before the payment expiry date listed in your email. It will then take you to a payment dashboard where you can choose your preferred method of payment.
Now depending on the method of payment, you may be asked to confirm your selection or provide information so your payment can be processed.
Digital payments are processed quickly, but it will take 2-5 business days:
Emails regarding digital payments for this matter commenced on May 31, 2023, and will be available to claim through September 28, 2023.
If you failed to make an electronic payment selection before the said date and have lost or misplaced your digital payment email, you will be automatically mailed an award check after the payment selection period has ended.
Your check will be mailed to the address submitted on your claim form.
If you did not claim your payment by the expiry date September 28, 2023 listed in your EpiqPay emails, the link will expire, and you will no longer be able to claim your payment digitally but will automatically be mailed an award check after the payment selection period has ended.
Those selecting the ‘check’ tile option on the EpiqPay payment wall will generally receive a physical check 4-6 weeks after making their selection.
If your email or physical address recently changed, don’t worry please write to the address below to check the status of your payment.
Note: All payment eligibility and status requests must be in writing and contain the following information:
your full name, your current email address, your full mailing address, and any email or physical addresses you may have recently used.
Now, if the Settlement Administrator determines that payment was sent to an older email or physical address, a new check will be issued to users at their current physical address provided in status inquiry.
This might take anywhere from 4-6 weeks to process this request.
