The Department of Interior has provided the data needed for the Trust Administration class distribution. GCG is currently validating this data. Once the data has been reviewed, Class Counsel will seek the final approval needed from the Court to commence distribution. GCG is prepared to commence sending out checks within three weeks as long as the Court gives final approval for the Trust Administration Class distribution. We will update the website when the first checks have been mailed. (Please note that checks may take 5-7 days to reach Class Members once they have been mailed.)

On May 29, 2014, the Court granted Class Counsel's request to disburse the second Cobell Settlement checks prior to expiration of the appeals, pending resolution by the Department of the Interior of property ownership records. It is anticipated that the second checks will be disbursed sometime in August or September. We will update as we learn more about the date of the check disbursement.
CLASS MEMBER ELIGIBILITY
The Settlement includes two Classes. You may be a member of one or both Classes.*
The Historical Accounting Class includes anyone that:
approximately 1985 to September 30, 2009.
The Trust Administration Class includes anyone who:
* Please note that most Class Members have been identified.
DECEASED CLASS MEMBERS
(dead before September 30, 2009)

Owned trust or restricted land and had open probate proceedings on September 30, 2009.
In order to distribute to the heir(s) of an Eligible Estate, the court-appointed Claims Administrator, the
Garden City Group, Inc. (“GCG”), must have some type of legal documentation indicating where the payment
should go. Below are the types of documentation authorized by the court overseeing the Settlement for
distribution to heir(s):
Please see below for where to submit copies of the estate documents marked above to GCG.

Dublin, OH 43017-4877
IMPORTANT UPDATE ON THE TRUST CLASS PAYMENTS
On May 29, 2014, the Court approved Plaintiff’s Motion to Allow Commencement of Trust Administration
Class Distribution Prior to Expiration of Appeals. Under the original terms of the Settlement Agreement, all appeal
determinations had to be completed before the Trust Class payments could be made. This Order represents the first
step in the Trust Administration payment distribution process, but there are several events that still need to occur
before distribution can be made. The Court must still approve a plan to allow payment to confirmed Class Members
while also reserving funds to pay those individuals who may become eligible if their appeals are granted.
At this time we do not know the exact date of disbursement, but additional information will be posted on our
website as it becomes available. Please visit www.indiantrust.com for further updates and information. You can
also contact our office toll free at 866-591-2958, and we will be happy to provide more information or answer any
