That's likely going to be correct for most people. TransUnion is the entity through whom I already have free credit monitoring, but I don't know that it was associated with a class action. I think they actually contacted me about the breach and all but requested I take the free credit monitoring, but I could be mistaken.

Okay I filled out the info to get the $125. Took like two minutes. Now we'll see how long it takes to get the check.

“If you don't do anything, you relinquish your right to sue Equifax in the future, and you give up on the $125 or 10 years of free credit monitoring provided by the settlement.“

So if something were to happen later you’re SOL.

Hard to say. I've fit the classes of a few different class actions (related and not related to data breaches that have paid out), I couldn't give a mean average, but I'd suggest the range has been two weeks to three months.

There are a few sites that compile class actions. Usually, the awards are much smaller. Generally, it seems to be done on the honor system. i.e. you don't have to produce receipts to prove you bought shampoo X or yogurt y sometime in the last 2 years.
