If so, you aren’t alone. More than 143 million people had data including credit histories and personal identifying information stolen from Equifax (one of the big 3 credit bureaus). While the courts and attorneys continue to argue about the matter, there is an opportunity to get a $125 payment (or more) from Equifax if you were one of the unfortunate victims. There is now a website to go to that allows you to check your eligibility (Was your data stolen?) and request payment and/or credit monitoring. If your identity was stolen and you had verifiable expenses you can also get at least partial compensation. Be sure to review all the information including the FAQ (frequently asked questions) before you finalize your claim.
