Almost 200,000 Indiana residents are being notified that their personal information may have been shared by the Indiana Family and Social Services Administration.
The agency said on Monday that a programming error in April sent personal information to other FSSA clients, though FSSA doesn’t know which clients were affected.
The problems started back on April 6 and lasted until May 21.
Almost 4,000 may have had their social security numbers released to others.
According to FSSA, other information accidentally disclosed includes “name, address, case number, and date of birth, gender, race, telephone number, email address, employer information, monthly income, bank balances and much more.
The FSSA is advising anyone concerned about identity theft to put a fraud alert on their credit report by contacting the big three credit agencies.
