Potential information breach may affect non-appropriated fund retirees
September 14, 2011
SAN ANTONIO - A compact disk containing the personal information of nearly 25,000 non-appropriated fund retiree records was lost in the mail between Alexandria, Va., and San Antonio during the final week of August.
The potentially compromised information contains names, social security numbers, and other information, such as type of retirement, retirement date, amount of life insurance carried, term data, and dates of service. Some records may also contain birth dates.
Retirees who are at risk have been sent notification letters advising them of the data loss and actions they can take to protect their identities.
Concerned retirees should call our 24-hour hotline, 210-466-1630, to determine if they were included in the database and to learn how to guard against misuses of the information.
This incident is being investigated by the Installation Management Command and the Army's Computer Emergency Readiness Team.
