To be sure you’re going to the right place, start at the FTC’s page: ftc.gov/Equifax.

Remember, you can go to ftc.gov/Equifax to find out if your information – like your Social Security number – was exposed in the September 2017 Equifax data breach and start a claim for benefits available under the settlement that the FTC and others reached with Equifax.
