Information on Equifax Data Breach

On September 7, 2017 Equifax announced a security breach in which the personal information of 143 million consumers was compromised.  Between May and July 2017, criminals gained access to much of the personal information required to commit identity theft, including names, account numbers, birthdates.  In some cases driver’s license numbers, transaction dispute information, and even credit card numbers may have been taken.

Please keep in mind the following:

  • DCCU systems were not compromised. Therefore, Equifax is your source for current information and updates. Visit the Equifax breach website at to determine if you have been impacted. The Equifax Call Center is also available at 866-447-7559 from 7:00 a.m. to 1:00 a.m.
  • If you are impacted, consider placing a freeze on your credit with all of the following credit reporting agencies: Equifax, TransUnion, Innovis, and Experian. Freezing your credit is the only way to prevent others from using your personal information to open accounts in your name.  Please visit their websites for more information and details.
  • Consider obtaining credit monitoring services. Equifax is offering free credit monitoring, whether impacted by the breach or not.
