While we are not aware of any misuse of your information, we are offering you, and any of your dependent minor children who were under the age of 18 as of July 1, 2015, credit and identity monitoring, identity theft insurance, and identity restoration services for the next three years through ID Experts, a company that specializes in identity theft protection.
Here are the services the Federal Government is providing to individuals impacted by the background investigation records incident:
Identity monitoring services includes monitoring of the Internet and monitoring database sources including those pertaining to criminal records, arrest records, bookings, court records, pay day loans, bank accounts, checks, sex offender, change of address, and Social Security number trace. Please sign up for MyIDCare to access this benefit.
This includes credit monitoring of credit reports at all three national credit reporting agencies (i.e., Experian, Equifax, and TransUnion). Please sign up for MyIDCare to access this benefit.
If your identity is compromised, representatives from ID Experts will work with you to take steps to restore your identity. You have access to this benefit at any time during the coverage period without having to enroll in other services.
Identity theft insurance has been provided to impacted individuals and their dependent minor children regardless of their enrollment status in other services. This insurance became effective on September 1, 2015 and the scope of this coverage includes all claims submitted on or prior to December 31, 2018. This insurance covers you for expenses incurred in restoring identity and is valid for amounts up to $1,000,000 with no deductible.

We have begun sending notifications to the 21.5 million individuals impacted by the cyber intrusion involving background investigation records. Due to the number of people impacted and because the nature of the information stolen has national security implications, it important that we take the time necessary to make sure the notification process is carried out carefully. We ask for your patience, as we estimate notifications will continue for approximately 12 weeks.
Those impacted by this incident automatically have access to identity restoration services and identity theft insurance through ID Experts, but will require a notification letter and PIN code to sign up for credit and identity monitoring.
If our records indicate your fingerprints were not compromised, your notification letter will look like this.
