Received the email below. Check your email or go here [equifaxbreachsettlement.com] to update your claim. You can elect to provide the name of the credit monitoring service you used to keep the payout or amend your claim to request free credit monitoring.

Quote :
According to our records, you filed a claim for alternative compensation of up to $125 in connection with the Equifax data breach settlement and certified on the claim form that you had some form of credit monitoring or protection in place and will continue to have the credit monitoring in place for a minimum of six months from the date of your claim filing.
You must either verify or amend your claim by October 15, 2019.

If you do not, your claim for alternative compensation will be denied.
• To verify your claim for alternative compensation, you must provide the name of your credit monitoring service that you had in place when you filed your claim.
- OR -
• You can amend your claim to request free credit monitoring instead of alternative compensation.
The easiest way to verify or amend your claim is by visiting the official Settlement Website here.

The amount you receive in connection with your alternative compensation claim may be significantly reduced depending on how many valid claims are ultimately submitted by other class members for this relief. Based on the number of potentially valid claims that have been submitted to date, payments of these benefits likely will be substantially lowered and will be distributed on a proportional basis if the settlement becomes final. Depending on the number of valid claims that are filed, the amount you receive for alternative compensation may be a small percentage of your initial claim.

Please note that if you do not take action by October 15, 2019, your claim for alternative compensation will be denied.

You can also verify or amend your claim by sending us a letter stating either the name of the credit monitoring service you had in place when you filed your claim or that you wish to amend your claim to select credit monitoring instead. Please include your full name, claim number from the top of this email, and zip code to the address below:
In re Equifax Data Breach Settlement
c/o JND Legal Administration
PO Box 91318
Seattle, WA 98111-9418
Further information about your rights and options, including the right to exclude yourself from the settlement, is available at www.EquifaxBreachSettlement.com.

They mention 4 years of credit monitoring with this amendment, but the original offer was for 10 years? What about the other 6? Do we still get them with the amended choice for credit monitoring?

Man they really wasn't us to pick the credit monitoring option, that is pretty obvious and was obvious even from get-go.

If memory serves me correctly....I think the 10 years was broken down into 4 years of all 3 credit bureau monitoring followed by 6 years of Equifax only


Yep, here it is..... "At least 4 years of three-bureau credit monitoring, offered through Experian. You can also get up to 6 more years of free one-bureau credit monitoring through Equifax."

Do we just need to provide name of monitoring service, or need a receipt of coverage (or something equivalent)?

At this point is the better option to not take anything and Sue them if anything happens in the future via the breach?

They were saying $125 for people but with nearly a third of all of American Adults being breached it would be 147 million which would mean they'd have $18.375 billion set aside if everyone took the payout. They only set aside $31 million for the payout and chalked up $669 million for their monitoring services(they own the multiple services and can say it costs X). They really just got a slap on the wrist as they continue to profit by selling our data.
