Some Affected by 2015 OPM Data Breach Will Have to Re-Register for Credit Monitoring

November 1, 2016

The Office of Personnel Management (OPM) announced that federal employees and retirees who were affected by the first-announced cyberattack on federal personnel records (announced June 4, 2015) and who signed up for credit monitoring with Winvale/CSID must now re-enroll with another company, ID EXPERTS, to continue to receive monitoring services. OPM’s contract with Winvale/CSID will expire December 1.

ID EXPERTS is the credit monitoring/identity theft contractor offering services for those individuals affected by the second-announced cyberattack – the breach of OPM’s background/security clearance records (July 9, 2015). Individuals who are already enrolled with ID EXPERTS will not need to take any action.

OPM will notify those individuals who must re-enroll by letter in the near future. Complete information can be found at OPM’s website, https://www.opm.gov/cybersecurity/personnel-records/.
