Update 6/25/2018: The Claims Administrator has completed the initial review of claims. Before distribution can commence, a secondary review of claims for VINs which have been claimed by multiple Class Members with overlapping claimed dates of ownership must be completed by a Special Master, who will be appointed by the Court. This review is currently underway.
It is anticipated that checks will mail before the end of the 3rd quarter of 2018. If you would like to know the status of your claim, please contact the Settlement Administrator. Neither MFTA nor its authorized dealerships are involved with the claims administration or fund distribution.
You will be able to file a claim online beginning November 28, 2016. You can also download a paper claim form here, or at the Case Documents link above.
If you wish to obtain a spreadsheet of your Subject Vehicle information to enable you to submit a claim for a large number of vehicles, please contact the Settlement Administrator.
