For up to five hours at $25/hour or, if you took time off work, your documented hourly wage; for up to fifteen hours if you provide supporting documentation.
3. Alternative cash payment: If you do not make a claim for reimbursement of out-of-pocket losses and lost time, you may submit a claim for a payment of $25. If you lived in California on August 1, 2021, you may submit a claim for a payment of $100.
4. Credit monitoring and restoration services: Two years of Identity Defense Services for credit monitoring and restoration services. No claim is required for restoration services, which will be available for two years after the settlement is final.
