Info On Missouri Blind Pension Lawsuit Agreement

Below are links & info I tweeted this morning in reference to the news I found on a proposed agreement in the Missouri Blind Pension lawsuit.

Here is the proposed agreement in the Missouri Blind Pension Lawsuit that both parties will ask to be approved on March 30, 2018 https://dss.mo.gov/pdfs/class-action-settlement-agreement-022818.pdf

From what I understand by reading the proposed agreement, no later than August 1, 2018 DFS will mail claim letters to all who are eligible. I’m not a legal scholar but there is some text about those eligible not needing to return a claim form, maybe someone more knowledgeable will confirm that wording. Also DFS will post electronic copies of the mailed letters on their web site. I also read that all payments are to be made before May 15, 2019.

 

Update:
This clears up some questions I had earlier about the Missouri Blind Pension Agreement.
