Indiana Attorney General Curtis Hill is urging Indiana residents to file a claim for a restitution payment related to the 2017 Equifax data breach. Hill’s office says nearly all 4 million Indiana residents impacted by the breach are eligible for a portion of the $19.5 million Equifax settlement with Indiana.
The last day to file claims is December 16.
The Equifax data breach impacted approximately 147 million Americans, including roughly 3.9 million Indiana residents. Hill’s office said the breach compromised Social Security numbers, dates of birth, addresses, driver’s license numbers and credit card information.
“We structured our settlement with Equifax so that we could give Hoosiers the opportunity to claim money they may have lost due to Equifax’s failure to protect personal information,” Attorney General Hill said. “That money is just waiting to be claimed. Now, it’s up to Hoosiers to visit IndianaEquifaxClaims.com and secure their rightful portion of the settlement.”
Following the data breach, Hill’s office sued Equifax and secured the settlement earlier this year.
