I filed for the $125, plus the money from me working a little over 9 hours checking accounts and verifying things with creditors (LOL).

I really wish I would have opted for the credit monitoring though. I say that because I don't think they will pay people 125. I feel like they may have set a certain amount aside for this purpose and no matter how many people sign up, they are going to keep that amount the same.

Meaning, if only a few thousand people signed up, they probably would have gotten the 125, but since so many people signed up, I think they will send people their "portion" of the "settlement". So, I expect a check for like .30 (yes, 30 cents). When I could have gotten free credit monitoring for all three of the credit companies.

Just my opinion though. I could be wrong.

Update 1/14/2020
Just a reminder to everyone that the deadline for applying for free credit monitoring due to the Equifax breach is Jan 22, so you have a week. The payout is going to be much less than the max of $125 per person more than likely, the monitor is much more appealing anyway.

-If you were affected (probably half of you were), you get monitoring and reports from all three credit bureaus for 4 years PLUS 6 years of Equifax monitoring and reports after that.

-Even if you were not affected, part of the settlement was for Equifax to provide US consumers an additional 6 credit reports per year for 7 years (in addition to your 1 free one from all three credit bureaus).

After you submit your claim it will seem like nothing happens, but they can't "give awards" until the final approval is authorized by the courts, which will be Jan 23rd at the earliest. They will then send out activation codes with instructions.

You can start at to see if your eligible. It takes 3 minutes to click through and register to get coverage if you are affected. (A note: There are garbage people that have made fake Equifax breach settlement sites, so by all means start at the FTC.gov site and navigate on your own. This link is legit though if you trust a random stranger on the internet).

I had credit monitoring already and know better than to opt in to something without knowing what they can offer, do, and overall reliability especially something free. I briefly read about the monitoring, but questions that flew through my head were "what and where do they monitor?, How long?". That's not saying the free service they offer isn't good, but with ANY free service I try to usually read the fine print if I leaning towards getting it.

You gotta be real careful with that, the keyword here is Monitoring. Some services will let your credit get fu*ked by fraud and may send you a email or call afterwards with what they think is fraud AFTER its happened, but others will stop/hold an attempt on your credit that can potentially be fraud and contact you first BEFORE allowing it to go through, some banks even do this. Big difference. It all depends on what they do or can offer.

If I'm not mistaken you can call or set it up for free without this breach as well (I know military you can, but its pretty much just lockdown, no new credit and no one inquiring about your credit which is damn near impossible). Long term wise, I'm good with the service I got now.

I did my settlement, and I helped my mom do hers. We both qualified and have not received anything or heard anything back. This was like 5-6 months ago.

"On the website, you can check whether you’ve been affected by the Equifax breach by inputting your last name and the last six digits of your Social Security number."

It says my information was not impacted by the breach

Was always worried someone was gonna be in Nicaragua with hella credit under my name

I wonder if I can still get that 125 tho
lol why would it be in Nicaragua tho? lol
