Can I Claim an Award?

To be eligible for a settlement award, you must be a resident of the United States and have received a Notice of Data Security Incident letter from Bay Bridge Administrators, LLC regarding the September 2022 incident. This letter indicates that your personal information, including names, dates of birth, Social Security Numbers, driver’s license numbers or state identification numbers, medical information, and health information, was potentially accessed by an unauthorized third party.

If you meet these criteria, you are considered a Settlement Class Member and are eligible to submit a claim for reimbursement of out-of-pocket losses or a pro rata cash payment. The official settlement website provides detailed instructions on how to submit your claim.

Specifically excluded from the Settlement Class are: (1) the judge presiding over the class action lawsuit and the judge’s direct family members; (2) the Defendant, its subsidiaries, parent companies, successors, predecessors, and any entity in which the Defendant or its parents have a controlling interest, and their current or former officers, directors, and employees; and (3) Settlement Class Members who submit a valid request to be excluded from the Settlement.

What Can I Claim?

The settlement provides two types of benefits for eligible claimants:

First, you can claim reimbursement for actual, documented, unreimbursed out-of-pocket losses resulting from the Security Incident, up to $5,000. These losses can include costs incurred from credit monitoring services, late fees, declined payment fees, overdraft fees, unauthorized charges on credit or debit cards, and other expenses reasonably attributable to the Security Incident.

Second, you can receive an estimated pro rata cash payment of $50, which may be adjusted based on the number of claims submitted and the remaining funds in the Qualified Settlement Fund after other allocations.

  • Reimbursement for Out-of-Pocket Losses: Up to $5,000 for documented expenses such as credit monitoring services, late fees, unauthorized charges, and other related costs.
  • Pro Rata Cash Payment: An estimated $50, subject to adjustment based on the total number of claims and remaining funds.

Is Proof Required to Claim the Reward?

Yes, proof is required to claim a reward. Claimants must provide supporting third-party documentation for their out-of-pocket losses. This can include receipts, bank statements, reports, or other documentation that supports the claim. Self-prepared documents such as handwritten receipts are insufficient by themselves but can add clarity or support other submitted documentation.

  • Receipts for credit monitoring services
  • Bank statements showing unauthorized charges
  • Reports or other documentation supporting the claim

How to Claim Your Award

To claim your award, you must complete and submit a claim form available on the official settlement website. You can submit your claim online at or mail your completed form to the Settlement Administrator at the provided address.

Ensure you read the instructions carefully, fill out the claim form accurately, and provide the required documentation to support your claim. Claims must be submitted or postmarked by July 24, 2024.

$2,516,890 Settlement Fund

The total settlement amount is $2,516,890. This fund will be used to reimburse documented out-of-pocket losses, provide pro rata cash payments to eligible claimants, and cover attorneys’ fees, litigation expenses, and administrative costs.

The settlement amount was determined based on the estimated number of affected individuals and the potential costs incurred due to the data security incident. If the total claims exceed the settlement amount, the pro rata payments may be adjusted accordingly.

Why is There a Class Action Settlement?

In September 2022, Bay Bridge Administrators, LLC experienced a data security incident where an unauthorized third party potentially accessed sensitive personal information stored on Bay Bridge’s network. This information included names, dates of birth, Social Security Numbers, driver’s license numbers or state identification numbers, medical information, and health information of employees of Bay Bridge customers.

The class action settlement addresses claims that Bay Bridge Administrators, LLC was responsible for the data security incident that compromised sensitive personal information. The lawsuit alleged negligence, breach of implied contract, unjust enrichment, breach of fiduciary duty, breach of the implied covenant of good faith and fair dealing, invasion of privacy, violation of the Washington Consumer Protection Act, and violation of the Arizona Consumer Fraud Act.

By agreeing to the settlement, Bay Bridge Administrators, LLC aims to resolve the claims without admitting any wrongdoing. The settlement provides a mechanism for affected individuals to receive compensation for their losses and ensures that Bay Bridge takes steps to enhance its data security measures.
