By Alix Martichoux, Nexstar Media Wire News / The Hill | The Hill Editor’s note: This story has been updated to correct the date a judge tentatively approved the settlement. |A massive $725 million settlement involving Facebook’s parent company Meta was tentatively approved by a judge last month, paving the way for users of the social media platform to apply for a chunk of the payout.

Meta has agreed to the payment to settle a lawsuit claiming Facebook allowed users’ personal data to be shared with third parties, the most famous being Cambridge Analytica, a consulting firm that supported Donald Trump’s 2016 presidential campaign. The firm harvested the data of as many as 87 million Facebook users, the Associated Press reported.

Final approval of the settlement isn’t expected until September, but Facebook users don’t need to wait to file their claim.

When will I get paid?
The final settlement hearing is set for Sept. 7, 2023, so any approved payments definitely wouldn’t be sent out before then. “Settlement payments will be distributed as soon as possible if the Court grants Final Approval of the Settlement and after any appeals are resolved,” the claim site’s FAQ explains.

The date of the hearing is also subject to change.
