Do you Need to Submit a Claim Form?
If you received a legal notice in the mail for this case addressed specifically to you at an HHDC Property with your Subclass designation printed on the mailing envelope, you do not need to submit a Claim Form. This means that you are on the Class List and you will automatically receive a payment from this Settlement.
Who Should Submit a Claim Form?
Submitting a Claim Form is the only way to receive a payment if
- you are a Former Tenant who qualifies as a Class Member
- if you moved from an HHDC Property after February 16, 2021
- you qualify as a Class Member but you did not receive a legal notice in the mail for this case addressed specifically to you at an HHDC Property with your Subclass designation printed on the mailing envelope
All Former Tenants must complete a timely Claim Form and provide their contact information to the Claims Administrator in order to receive payment. All Unidentified Tenants who believe that they are Settlement Class Members will need to complete and return to the Claims Administrator a valid Claim Form with documentation showing their HHDC Tenancy (i.e. a signed lease, recertification documents for HHDC housing, or receipt for your security deposit).
If you are a Former Tenant or Unidentified Tenant and you do not complete a valid and timely Claim Form, you will not receive any money from the Settlement and you will give up any rights you currently have to separately sue Defendants for the conduct that is the subject of the lawsuit. Claim Forms are available here.
To be valid, Claim Forms must be submitted no later than June 3, 2021.

HHDC Claims Administrator
c/o The Notice Company
P.O. Box 455
Hingham, MA 02043
