Equifax Data Breach Incident

Credit reporting agency Equifax has announced a cybersecurity incident that involves a data breach of confidential information such as birthdates and social security numbers that could impact 143 million U.S. consumers. Please be cautious of which sites you visit to determine if your personal information is impacted as scammers may see this as an opportunity to obtain your confidential information.

Equifax has established a website, www.equifaxsecurity2017.com, including a simple way to check if your information is part of the breach by entering your name and last six digits of your social security number.

As always, it’s a good idea to keep a close eye on your accounts and report any unusual account activity to our Member Information Center.  And remember Members First will never contact you by phone or email requesting your personal information.

We will post any additional updates as we receive them.
