A security breach may have exposed the personal information of hundreds of recipients of state benefits, the Rhode Island departments of Labor and Training and Human Services said Monday in a joint statement.
The state said it recently learned of a security breach at J.P. Morgan Chase that may have affected up to 1,850 people receiving unemployment insurance, temporary disability insurance or child support payments through prepaid debit cards.
The security breach may have exposed addresses, email addresses, phone numbers, dates of birth, card numbers, user IDs and bank account numbers, the state said. The breach happened between July and September.
J.P. Morgan Chase said it is contacting card holders by email and mail. The company said there is no evidence that any personal information has been used improperly, but it is offering a year of free credit monitoring.
