Submit a Claim - Claim Instructions

If you were notified that your private information (“Personal Information”) was compromised in the April 2017 theft of Washington State University Social and Economic Sciences Research Center’s hard drive at Quality Self Storage in Olympia, Washington (the “Security Incident”), you are a “Settlement Class Member.” If you received a notice about this class action Settlement addressed to you, then the Claims Administrator has already determined that you are a Settlement Class Member.

As a Settlement Class Member, you are eligible to receive (1) two years of free Credit Monitoring and Identity Theft Insurance Services (“Credit Monitoring and Insurance Services”); (2) up to a $5,000.00 cash payment for reimbursement of documented Out-of-Pocket Costs that you paid and are plausibly connected to the Security Incident; and (3) a cash payment for time you spent addressing or remedying issues that are plausibly connected to the Security Incident ($15.00 per hour for up to three hours).

The free Credit Monitoring and Insurance Services will be the Individual Total Plan provided by Identity Guard, valued at $19.99 per month. If you already subscribe to the Individual Total Plan with Identity Guard, two additional years will be added to your current plan for free. If you already have a similar service from another provider, you can request that this service start after your other product expires.

To claim the Credit Monitoring and Insurance Services, you need only provide your email address.

Cash payments amounts may be reduced pro rata (proportionately) depending on the number of Settlement Class Members that participate in the Settlement. Complete information about the Settlement and its benefits are available on this site.
