JPMorgan Chase Class-Action Settlement Is Approved

A federal judge approved a settlement Friday of a class-action lawsuit against JPMorgan Chase for its force-placed insurance practices, an agreement that could pay more than $300 million to about 750,000 mortgage borrowers.

The national settlement prohibits the bank for six years from getting commissions, kickbacks or reinsurance from the insurance, which it obtains when a homeowner’s policy lapses.

Under U.S. District Judge Federico Moreno’s order in Miami, class members will have to file claim forms to recover 12.5 percent of the net premiums they were charged between Jan. 1, 2008, and Oct. 4, 2013. Moreno also barred JPMorgan Chase and Assurant and its insurance subsidiaries “from inflating premiums” for six years.
