If You Paid Fees on Your Department of Corrections Program Prepaid Card Issued by Bank of America, N.A., You May Be Eligible for a Payment from a Class Action Settlement.


A Settlement has been reached in a class action lawsuit about a prepaid card program operated by Bank of America, N.A. (“BofA”) for inmates released from Arizona correctional facilities. Under a program for Arizona’s Department of Corrections, the State of Arizona provides recently released inmates with a prepaid card (“BofA CashPay card”) containing funds issued by BofA (“DOC Program Prepaid Cards”). The lawsuit, Brill v. Bank of America, N.A., is pending in the United States District Court for the District of Arizona. The lawsuit challenges the ownership of the funds on the DOC Program Prepaid Cards, the fees BofA charged for use of the cards, and the disclosures BofA provided in connection with the cards. BofA denies any liability or wrongdoing. However, to settle the case and avoid the costs and risks of litigation, BofA has agreed to a settlement.

You are a member of the Settlement Class, and you may be eligible for a payment under the Settlement, if you reside in the United States and received a DOC Program Prepaid Card issued by BofA when you were released from an Arizona correctional facility on or before April 19, 2017.

If you are a member of the Settlement Class, you may receive your Settlement Payment by automatic deposit to your DOC Program Prepaid Card account or by check, depending on whether you are an Active Cardholder or an Inactive Cardholder (as defined immediately below).

Active Cardholders: You are an Active Cardholder if your DOC Program Prepaid Card account remains open and able to receive funds and does not have a negative balance. If you are an Active Cardholder, and you do not exclude yourself from this Settlement, you will receive your Settlement Payment automatically as a deposit on your DOC Program Prepaid Card. If you prefer to receive your Settlement Payment instead by check, you may file a Claim indicating that preference. If you submit a Claim requesting your Settlement Payment by check, you may also request that the check include the full remaining balance on your DOC Program Prepaid Card.

Inactive Cardholders: You are an Inactive Cardholder if you are not an Active Cardholder. If you are an Inactive Cardholder, you may seek a Settlement Payment, plus any remaining balance on your DOC Program Prepaid Card, by submitting a Claim. Inactive Cardholders will receive their Settlement Payments by check.
