Final countdown to claim one-time payments between $20 and $5,350 from Audi settlement– see if you’re eligible

THE deadline for Americans to cash up to $5,350 from an Audi deal is almost here.

The German luxury carmaker has reached a $3.5 million settlement with parent company Volkswagen Group after allegedly leaking customer information in a data breach.

As a result, those affected are eligible for a one-time payment of up to $5,350.

And this despite the fact that neither Volkswagen nor Audi admit any wrongdoing.


To be eligible, you must have been a current, past or potential Volkswagen or Audi customer.

In addition, you had to receive a letter in June 2021 detailing that your personal information may have been compromised in the data breach.

The breach reportedly disclosed sales and marketing data from 2014 to 2019 and occurred between August 2019 and May 2021.

Here’s the breakdown of how much you can make from the settlement depending on which group you end up in.

  • Statewide PI exposure subclass: $20
  • Statewide SPI Exposure Subclass: $80
  • California SPI Subclass: $350

The Settlement also offers reimbursement for expenses related to the data breach.

In addition, beneficiaries can request up to $5,000 for fraud, identity theft, credit costs, communications fees, and up to four hours of unpaid time off at $50 per hour.

This means customers in California could get as much as $5,350.


However, in order to get your share of the settlement money, you must trade.

Claims can be submitted online until Wednesday April 12th.

In addition, you can send an application form to the following address, which must be received by the same date:

PO Box 3637
Portland, OR 97208-3637

Those who wish to claim reimbursements for out-of-pocket losses must provide proof.

“Documents should be clear, legible copies as anything you submit will not be returned to you,” the settlement details said.

“If you’re submitting online, please have this information ready before you begin filing, as your claim will not be saved if you return and need to finish at a later date.”


In the meantime, there are other rapidly approaching payment deadlines that you may be entitled to.

This includes a Guaranteed Income pilot program being offered in Sacramento, California.

The $500 per month payments are available to low-income residents.

You can apply online until April 15 at 2:59 p.m.

In addition, Kansas residents may be eligible for the Homestead Refund and Kansas Property Tax Relief for Low Income Seniors (SAFESR).

Qualifying Kansans can earn up to $700 depending on the situation.

You must also be either at least 56 years old, blind or permanently disabled, or have a dependent child living with you throughout 2022.

Many of these residents are also likely to be eligible for the SAFESR reimbursement.

The program gives certain low-income homeowners a 75 percent refund of property taxes paid if they meet the following requirements:

  • 65 years or older
  • Owned her home in Kansas for all of 2022
  • Home value is $350,000 or less
  • Household income is $22,000 or less

The deadline for submitting these claims to Kansas is April 15.
