Equifax Data Breach – What you need to know
September 8, 2017

On September 7, 2017, Equifax announced a data breach potentially impacting 143 million consumers. The information accessed primarily includes names, Social Security numbers, birth dates, addresses and, in some instances, driver’s license numbers. The credit card numbers for about 209,000 U.S. consumers and certain dispute documents with personal identifying information for about 182,000 U.S. consumers were also accessed.

Equifax has set up a website, www.equifaxsecurity2017.com, to help members find out if their information has been impacted and to sign up for free credit file monitoring and identity theft protection.

Equifax will also send notices in the mail to anyone whose credit card number or dispute documents with personal identifying information were impacted. If you receive one of these notices, UFCU will issue you a new credit card for free of charge.
