Who’s Eligible

You are included in the Target data breach class action settlement if you received notice directly about the breach or if:
  • You shopped at a Target store and used your credit or debit card from Nov. 27 through Dec. 18, 2013;
  • You provided your contact information to Target any time before Dec. 18, 2013; or
  • Your bank, credit card company, or other financial institution issued you a new credit or debit card shortly after December 2013; and the letter accompanying the new card said that your old card may have been compromised.

Potential Award

Up to $10,000. According to Court documents, shoppers affected by the Target data breach could be awarded up to $10,000 each in damages if they can prove that they incurred such losses. [More information about what “reimbursement of losses” means can be found in the Settlement Notice.]
If you do not have documentation you may be eligible to file for an equal share of the Settlement Fund after claims are paid out for those with documented losses and service payments are made to Settlement Class Representatives. This means your payment will be based on: (1) how many people file claims without documentation, (2) the amount the Court awards as service payments to Settlement Class Representatives, and (3) the number of valid claims filed.
The Settlement Administrator provides the following example:
“[i]f the amount the Court awards as service payments plus the amount of documentary claims add up to a total of $1,000,000, and 300,000 Settlement Class Members submit valid claims without documentation, each of these Settlement Class Members will receive an equal $30 share of the Settlement Fund.”
This is just an example. There is no way to tell how much money could be awarded until after all claims have been filed and verified.

Proof of Purchase
You will need to provide proof of losses incurred from the Target data breach in order to be reimbursed for your losses.
