Find out how to determine if you've been affected by the Equifax data breach and what you can do to protect yourself.

In recent news, one of the three major consumer credit reporting agencies, Equifax Inc., has reported that hackers gained access to company data that potentially compromised sensitive information, of approximately 143 million American consumers.

Equifax estimates that the entry occurred mid-May through July 2017 due to a vulnerability in a U.S. website application. The information accessed primarily consists of names, Social Security numbers, birth dates, addresses, and, in some instances, driver’s license numbers. Additionally, credit card numbers for approximately 209,000 consumers, and certain dispute documents, which included personal identifying information, for approximately 182,000 consumers were accessed.

Protecting Yourself 

Equifax has established a dedicated website to help consumers determine if their information has been potentially impacted. Consumers whose credit card numbers or dispute documents with personal identifying information were impacted will also receive direct mail notices from Equifax. 

To find out if you are potentially impacted, please go to and select "Potential Impact”, then enter your last name and the last 6 digits of your Social Security number. 

Equifax is offering free identity theft protection and credit file monitoring to all U.S. consumers, even if you are not impacted by this incident.

For consumers with additional questions, Equifax has established a dedicated call center. The call center is available daily (including weekends) from 7:00 a.m. – 1:00 a.m. EST by calling 866.447.7559
