If you were an Indiana resident in September 2017,
you may be eligible for a portion of the
Office of the Indiana Attorney General’s settlement with Equifax.
In September 2017, Equifax – one of the world’s largest credit-reporting bureaus – announced it had experienced a data breach that impacted the personal information
of approximately 3.9 million Indiana residents. Indiana Attorney General Curtis Hill filed a lawsuit against Equifax on behalf of the State of Indiana in May 2019, in
an effort to help Hoosiers harmed by the breach.
Earlier this year, the Office of the Indiana Attorney General (OAG) and Equifax settled that lawsuit. As part of the settlement, Equifax agreed to pay $19.5 million to
the State of Indiana. That money is being directed to consumer restitution payments and costs associated with the settlement.
If your personal information was impacted in the data breach, you are eligible for a consumer restitution payment.
