Are You Owed Money in the Equifax Data Breach Settlement?
Are you owed any money in the big Equifax settlement? It will only take a minute to check.
147 million people were affected in Equifax's data breach in September 2017. Now the company has agreed to pay millions in a settlement and some of it could be yours. To see if you are eligible for $125 in compensation, just go to the SECURE Equifax Data Breach Settlement website and enter your name and last 6 digits of your social security number.
If you were impacted, you have several options for compensation.
1. Choose free credit monitoring, a cash payment (if you already have credit monitoring)
2. If you spent time recovering from the breach, you can request payment
3. If you lost or spent money because of the breach, you can request payment
I was shocked to find out I was affected by the breach. You may be surprised to see your name too.
