NTEU Gets News Updates on OPM Data Breach


 

NTEU has received updates from the Office of Personnel Management (OPM) on the data breach impacting federal employees and retirees.

Thanks to NTEU’s efforts on Capitol Hill, the $1 million cap for the identity theft liability insurance being provided by OPM has been raised to $5 million. This increase in coverage has been extended automatically, and no action is needed.

NTEU also successfully worked with Congress to mandate 10 years of credit monitoring and theft protection services, rather than the originally-planned 18 months. OPM is working on implementing this and plans to notify individuals about it later this year.

NTEU also learned that approximately 10 percent of the affected 21.5 million individuals in the second background investigations breach did not receive a mailed notification letter last year, mainly due to outdated address information. OPM has begun to re-mail notification letters. Visit NTEU's data breach page for the complete story and get updates from OPM.
