The Federal Government has set up a verification center to assist individuals who have lost their PIN code or believe their data may be impacted but have not yet received notification letters. If you believe that you were impacted in the cyber intrusion involving background investigation records, but have not yet received your notification letter, we ask that you wait until mid-December before contacting the verification center. The Federal Government anticipates completing the mailing of notification letters by the end of the second week in December.
Yesterday, we began mailing notification letters to the individuals whose personal information was stolen in the cyber intrusion involving background investigation records. Impacted individuals will be notified by OPM via U.S. Postal Service mail. Email will not be used. The letters being mailed to those impacted by this incident will describe the comprehensive suite of identity theft protection and credit monitoring services that will be provided for at least three years, at no cost, to impacted individuals and to their dependent minor children.

As part of the government’s ongoing work to notify individuals affected by the theft of background investigation records, the Office of Personnel Management and the Department of Defense have been analyzing impacted data to verify its quality and completeness. During that process, OPM and DoD identified archived records containing additional fingerprint data not previously analyzed. Of the 21.5 million individuals whose Social Security Numbers and other sensitive information were impacted by the breach, the subset of individuals whose fingerprints have been stolen has increased from a total of approximately 1.1 million to approximately 5.6 million. This does not increase the overall estimate of 21.5 million individuals impacted by the incident. An interagency team will continue to analyze and refine the data as it prepares to mail notification letters to all impacted individuals.
The U.S. Department of Defense (DoD) and the U.S. Office of Personnel Management (OPM) today announced the award of a $133,263,550 contract to Identity Theft Guard Solutions LLC, doing business as ID Experts, for identity theft protection services for 21.5 million individuals whose personal information was stolen following one of the largest cybercrimes ever carried out against the United States Government. These services will be provided at no cost to the victims of this crime. The U.S. Government, through the Department of Defense, will notify those impacted beginning in late September and continue over the following weeks. Notifications will be sent directly to impacted individuals.
