Maine Grocers & Food Producers Association Welcomes New Endorsed Class Action Settlement Claims Partner

March 13, 2024 (Augusta, Maine)— The Maine Grocers & Food Producers Association (MGFPA) has partnered with DCap Claims — a 3rd party filer of business-to-business settlement claims. DCap is our trusted partner to help members recover swipe fees from the $5.54 billion Visa/Mastercard class action and antitrust settlements for all eligible merchants who accepted Visa/Mastercard credit cards between January 1, 2004 and January 25, 2019.

Updated May 14, 2024: In an Order dated May 14, 2024, the Court granted an extension of the claims-filing deadline. The EXTENDED deadline to submit claims is August 30, 2024.

MGFPA hosted a webinar in collaboration with the Retail Association of Maine and New Hampshire Retail Association to launch the partnership and this new settlement claims member benefit. Guest speakers, JR Long, COO and Matt Miller, Education Center Manager at DCAP Claims, explained how to maximize and simplify settlement claims. MGFPA encourages all our members to review their settlement eligibility and consider participating in this opportunity. While you do not need to sign up with a third-party service to participate in any monetary relief, MGFPA has vetted and approved the partnership with DCap to provide an added membership benefit as follows:

  • 25% contingency fee, reduced from DCap’s market fee of 30%
  • Ongoing support from DCap’s Education Center, including quarterly newsletter
  • Notification of other settlements and government programs
  • Early recovery and payment options available for those interested
