Submit a Claim - Claim Instructions

If you are a former, current, or prospective Volkswagen or Audi customer who received notice in June 2021 that your personal information may have been compromised in a data security incident, you are eligible for a monetary award from this class action settlement. You must submit a claim form to receive a settlement award. Claim forms must be submitted online or postmarked no later than April 12, 2023. Claims submitted online after the deadline or postmarked after the deadline will be deemed untimely and may not be accepted.

The following settlement awards are available:

  1. Cash Payments. You may seek a cash payment regardless of whether you have incurred any out-of-pocket losses. California SPI Subclass members are eligible for a cash payment of $350. Nationwide SPI Subclass members are eligible for a cash payment of $80. Nationwide PI Subclass members are eligible for a cash payment of $20. All cash payments are subject to an upward or downward proration depending on how much money is available to disburse settlement awards.
  2. Reimbursement for out-of-pocket loss(es). If you are a member of the California SPI or Nationwide SPI subclass and spent money monitoring for and/or mitigating identity theft or other fraud fairly traceable to the data security incident, you may seek reimbursement of up to $5,000 for any unreimbursed expenses. You must submit documents supporting your reimbursement request. Reimbursement payments are subject to downward proration, depending on how much money is available to disburse settlement awards.

California SPI and Nationwide SPI Subclass members may file settlement claims for either reimbursement for out-of-pocket losses or for cash payments, but not for both. Nationwide PI Subclass members may file settlement claims for cash payments.
