Good news regarding the Equifax data breach from 2017 (I’m actually surprised I just typed that sentence). Equifax has agreed to a $700 million settlement, and it’s actually pretty good. Any individual whose data was compromised has the ability to file a claim and receive either credit monitoring for the next 4 years or a cash payment of up to $125.00.
Anyone who believes they’ve been more substantially impacted by the breach (e.g. victim of identity theft, paid for credit monitoring) is eligible to add a claim for funds for time spent along with recoupment of out-of-pocket expenses.
The class action claim administrator has set up a website with additional information, which is also the place a person can file the claim. I’m also happy to answer any other questions.
