Equifax® Data Breach Update

Update 10/3/17: Credit reporting agency Equifax has announced a breach of their systems between mid-May through July 2017. The information accessed includes primarily names, social security numbers, birth dates, addresses, and, in some instances, driver license numbers. In addition, credit card numbers for approximately 209,000 individuals and certain dispute documents with personally identifying information for approximately 182,000 individuals were accessed.

Equifax has established an informational website,, which includes a way to check if your information is part of the breach by entering your name and last six digits of your social security number. Your social security number is confidential information, so make sure you are using a secure computer and an encrypted network connection.
