Not a thing wrong with that program. I would much rather be in those shoes than the dude who has big payments on everything.

It's surprisingly stress-free. The only advice I would give to anyone considering it is make sure you and your wife really like each other before you decide to live in 800 sq ft. Fortunately, we do.

Let's see here... to collect my $125.00 I have to basically give my life history to two other for profit organizations who are equally likely to get hacked in future so I might be "outed" twice more? I don't need a hunski that badly; pass thank you.

Thanks to MM post found I was impacted and signed up for $125.

Also first did the free Credit Karma sign up. Found from this site that three passwords I used in the past were exposed by 12 different breaches in the past.

My wife was not impacted, and neither my father-in-law who lives with us. I've also been using Credit Karma for years now.

The $125 isn't guaranteed, the more people who sign up reduces what everyone gets.

I have a secret weapon to keep the hackers at bay. I borrow but I don't pay. I also declare bankruptcy often. So with a credit score of 3, I ain't worried about hackers.

So many people opted for the cash that they've removed it as an option.

FTC says ‘you will be disappointed’ if you choose $125 for Equifax payout

The Federal Trade Commission said today there’s been “overwhelming” interest in a settlement agreement with Equifax, and that consumers looking for a previously announced payout of up to $125 may be disappointed.

The agency said this month that it had reached a $700 million agreement with the credit reporting agency over a massive breach of private data in 2017. As part of the settlement, consumers whose data was compromised could request up to $125 or free credit monitoring services. The potential for a quick payout generated major interest, but only $31 million of the settlement was set aside for cash payouts, meaning each payout could be far smaller than $125, depending on how many people request one.

In a blog post today, the FTC tempered expectations. “A large number of claims for cash instead of credit monitoring means only one thing: each person who takes the money option will wind up only getting a small amount of money,” the agency said. “Nowhere near the $125 they could have gotten if there hadn’t been such an enormous number of claims filed.”

The Equifax breach exposed the personal information of 147 million people, giving many consumers a chance at some cash. But as the FTC points out, “all 147 million people” can make a claim on that $31 million, and many apparently have. The agency says “millions” have already filed a claim online.

The agency is encouraging consumers to consider taking the free credit monitoring option instead. “You can still choose the cash option on the claim form,” the agency writes in an FAQ on the settlement, “but you will be disappointed with the amount you receive and you won’t get the free credit monitoring.”

Shouldn't have to file any claim. Equifax knows who was impacted. Send them restitution and give everyone free credit monitoring. They are the ones that had the issue, not the people.

Yeah what a bunch of bullshit. Only the government and lawyers made out. EquiSUCK escaped with a slap on the hand.
