BREACH: ASRS 44000 retirees affected

Nearly 44,000 state retirees may have had their personal data compromised in a security breach, and the Arizona State Retirement System is spending about $291,000 to provide identity-protection services for them.

The pension system this month began notifying affected retirees, all of whom were enrolled in the ASRS dental plans.

The system has offered to pay for 12 months of services with AllClear ID, the same company that is providing identity-theft protection to customers affected by a breach at Home Depot.

Those affected can call AllClear ID at 1-855-731-6012 for help. The benefits include credit monitoring and a $1 million identity-theft insurance policy.
