Last chance to opt out of the Income Compliance class action
19 July 2021
If you lodged an objection to the class action settlement with the Court, you’ll get a letter with opt out information.
We’re contacting group members who lodged an objection to the Income Compliance class action settlement. You may know this as the robodebt class action.
The Federal Court ruled that those who lodged an objection must have another chance to leave the class action.
If you’re one of the objecting group members, we’ll send you a Notice to Objecting Group Members. We’ll send it before 6 August 2021 either by post or to your myGov inbox.
If you want to leave the class action, complete your opt out notice and return it to the Federal Court. The Court must receive your notice by 4 pm AEST on 17 September 2021. The notice includes information about how to submit it.
There won’t be another chance to leave the class action.
If you didn’t lodge an objection to the settlement with the Court, you won’t get this opt out notice.
