Request for Exclusion - Instructions

If you wish to exclude yourself from this Settlement you must submit a “Request for Exclusion.” Persons who timely elect to be excluded from the proposed Class shall be excluded with respect to all Policies which would otherwise be eligible for a Settlement Check. Additionally, if any holder of a jointly-held Policy makes a timely election to be excluded from the Class, then all joint policyholders on the Policy will be excluded.

If you request to be excluded from the Settlement, you will not receive any payment as part of this Settlement; however, you will retain any rights you may currently have to sue Alliance for the claims in this Lawsuit.

Requests for Exclusion must be electronically submitted or postmarked by February 2, 2017.
