Allegations that Allianz Global Assistance (AGA) illegally imposed an assistance fee on travel and event protection policies sold through airline carriers and event ticket dealers were settled out of court in a $19.75 million class action settlement.

Customers in California and Washington who purchase specific travel and event ticket insurance plans from Allianz stand to gain from the AGA class action settlement. 

As part of their travel or event protection plan(s), class members may receive up to 75% of the assistance expenses they paid, as per the settlement terms. The time at which the plans were purchased will affect the compensation amounts. 

Qualifying candidates can only receive the payment if they submit a claim form by the announced deadline of 25 January 2024. Below is the step-by-step process to file a claim for getting payment.

AGA Class Action Settlement Payout

Members of the California class who purchased a plan between September 4, 2016, and July 31, 2019, or members of the Washington class who purchased a plan between April 2, 2018, and April 7, 2020, will receive a 75% refund. 

Refunds of 40% will be given to members of the California class who purchase plans between August 1, 2019, and September 30, 2023, or to members of the Washington class between April 8 and September 30, 2020. 

Compensation rates for individual plans may vary for claimants who acquired numerous insurance during different periods. Depending on the volume of claims submitted, class members may get up to twice as much money back as they had anticipated. 

The lawsuit’s attorneys have requested a portion of the Settlement Amount, up to $205,000, to cover out-of-pocket costs, 25% for legal fees, and $5,000 for each plaintiff. These sums would be deducted from the Settlement Fund if approved.

Who is eligible for AGA Class Action Settlement?

The only requirements are to purchase designated AGA plans and to be a resident of California or Washington during the defined periods. There are no complicated rules regarding the quantity of travel, the carriers that can be employed, or other limitations.

  • Any resident of California who, for a trip or event within California, acquired one or more qualifying travel and/or event protection plans between September 4, 2016, and September 30, 2023, is eligible to participate.
  • Residents of Washington who bought one or more qualified travel and/or event protection policies for a trip or event inside the state of Washington between April 2, 2018, and September 30, 2023, are considered members of the Washington class.

When Will My Settlement Cash Payment Arrive?

The timely submission of a Claim Form does not ensure a payment in cash. The Final Approval Hearing is set for February 22, 2024, at 2:00 PM Pacific Standard Time. 

The Cash Payments will be made within 60 days of the Settlement’s Effective Date if the Court accepts it and no appeals are filed unless the Court orders a different timeline. No Cash Payments will be made if the Settlement is rejected by the Court or is reversed on appeal.
