Local News

Consumers affected by the 2017 data breach at Equifax can now file a claim benefits.

The website https://www.equifaxbreachsettlement.com/file-a-claim is now online. The site also describes ways to file a claim without a computer.

Any consumer who was among the 147 million Americans identified by Equifax whose personal information was impacted is eligible, and restitution is prioritized to people who actually experienced out-of-pocket costs or losses because of the breach.

A fund of $380 million has been established by Equifax to help victims.

The settlement was announced Monday.
