Concerned about the Equifax Data Breach?
We can help.
With the recent news of the massive Equifax data breach, you are likely concerned. Here are the steps to take to find out if you may be affected, and what to do in response.
First, you will need to visit Equifax's data breach website.
Then click on “Potential Impact” tab.
- Provide your last name and the last six digits of your Social Security number.
- Based on this information, you will receive a response indicating whether your personal information may have been impacted by this incident.
You will be offered the opportunity to register for Equifax’s monitoring service, TrustedID Premier.
If you are already enrolled in IDProtect with BlueOx Credit Union, you have credit monitoring service and several other valuable services available to you.
If you are not enrolled, now is a good time to do so. If you are unsure if you are enrolled, this can be confirmed if you have $2 per month deducted from your BlueOx account.
Just electing the service isn’t enough. Users need to register on the IDProtect website to receive the credit monitoring service and to obtain access to any of the other services, such as free credit reports and credit scores. This requires an activation code from BlueOx to complete. Please ask if you need this code.
