Victims of one of the largest data breaches to ever hit the federal government are one step closer to a payout, more than seven years later.

A federal judge on Friday finalized the Office of Personnel Management’s settlement agreement with current and former federal employees, as well as federal job applicants, impacted by a major data breach in 2015.

District Judge Amy Berman Jackson, in a fairness hearing at the U.S. District Court for the District of Columbia, said the $63 million settlement for breach victims was “fair, reasonable and adequate.”

Jackson made a preliminary approval of the settlement on June 7.
