Do you remember the Great PlayStation Network Hack of 2011, which caused a 23-day outage and a massive credit card breach? I didn’t: I had to look it up. If you were one of the estimated 70 million people affected, and you happened to know about a class action suit settled in 2014 to file a claim, you can expect to receive some game credits soon. Make sure that the claims administrators know where to find you.

If you filed a claim, you also had the opportunity to choose cash, games, or themes at the time. You needed to have an account with PlayStation Network, Qriocity, or Sony Online Entertainment before May 15 of 2011 and to have filed the claim form by September 4, 2015.

If you filed a claim for identity theft due to the breach, you’ll receive that sometime after March 2 of this year. Cash payments will come by check to the address on file, and game codes will be e-mailed to the e-mail address that the claims administrator has on file.
