You may be eligible to claim part of a $100 million class-action settlement if you are or were a Verizon post-paid customer and were charged a monthly administrative fee — but you must act fast.

Claims must be filed by April 15 to receive payment from the settlement, Verizon said. The settlement follows a class-action lawsuit filed by Verizon's post-paid wireless service customers that charged an “unfair and not adequately disclosed” monthly administrative charge. Verizon denies that it did anything wrong and that the suit lacks merit but has agreed to the proposed $100 million settlement to resolve the suit.
