Salle MaeUPDATE (2/26/13): Top Class Actions has just been notified that settlement checks from the Sallie Mae TCPA Class Action lawsuit Settlement have been sent! One Top Class Actions reader reports he received a check for $118 — well above the estimated payout. Congratulations to all successful claimants!

A federal judge has granted Final Approval of the amended Sallie Mae class action lawsuit settlement we reported on in April. Class Members who filed claims for the Sallie Mae settlement can expect to receive their checks in the mail shortly.

Sallie Mae agreed to pay $24.15 million to student loan borrowers as part of a class action lawsuit settlement to resolve allegations it violated the Telephone Consumer Protection Act (TCPA) by making a number of non-emergency autodialed calls and/or text messages to the borrowers’ cell phones in an attempt to collect outstanding debt.

Under the terms of the Sallie Mae TCPA settlement, Sallie Mae agreed to pay settlement Class Members between $20 and $40 or reduce their principal balance if they received one of these automated calls between October 27, 2005 and September 14, 2010 and submitted a timely Claim Form by August 31, 2012.

    Are borrowers still able to file a claim? I see claims were due August 31, 2012, but I never received notice of this lawsuit. I continue to receive robocalls on my cell phone each day, including Saturday and Sunday, sometimes before 6:00 AM.

    Hi, they still call me everyday, several times a day. SO annoying, when will they stop, I told them to stop but they do not care.

  • Wrong Number February 7, 2013

    they call my phone everyday for someone that I don’t even know. Every day I am spammed by their robotic and also representatives asking for someone who had this number before me. For 3 months straight, to no avail, they harrass me for no reason whatsoever.

    Never received my check either. Like the previous entry the website is no longer available. Claim number 3142322. I wonder what recourse can be taken to get this payment? Has anyone else have any advice?

  • wanda moss March 5, 2015

    Any way those that were never notified of class action suit can get paid?

  • ks June 10, 2015

    This is BS I was contacted as part of this lawsuit because i was called several times threw the years and I have not received a check or any further info. This is BS and a waist of time for everyone. They can keep the $118 wont make a difference for what i owe on loans anyway

  • April champion July 8, 2015

    I’m with the last two commented!! I filed a claim and still have the card just found it and realized that I too have not received a check or heard anything else about the matter!! Claim# ssl30254368 & control# 1191315988 and the web sight no longer available!! But like the person before me said $118.00 ain’t nothing to what I owe!! I think it should be a lot more for all the BS we had to go through with the harassing phone calls 3 to 4 times a day if not more at all hours of the day! So who ever is responsible for the crap needs too get on the ball about the people’s money we never seen!!! If I don’t hear anything back within a few days I will pursue this matter in a different manner!!

  • rebecca November 4, 2015

    So sad. I have never missed a single months payment to sally Mae though have paid after the due date due to pay period. Once after the due date, they auto dial several times a day my number along with telephoning my parents who co signed. They harass my parents and I feel so bad as I am the primary borrow and have never skipped a payment in 11 years. In 11 years my balance has only dropped 2,000.00. I wished I would have been contacted as part of this lawsuit! Maybe I should bring forth my own lawsuit!

  • DINNER WHITE December 10, 2015
