Hackers Accessed Info on Pennsylvania WC and Unemployment Benefits Cardholders

If you’re a Pennsylvanian who has a debit card for receiving your workers’ comp benefits or unemployment benefits, your information may have been accessed by hackers.

According to an article on NBCPhiladelphia.com, the Pennsylvania Treasury Department said that hackers accessed the personal information of nearly 26,000 people who use debit cards to get their WC and unemployment benefits. Only those who used the JPMorgan Chase UCard Center website between mid-July and mid-September are affected. A spokesman for JP Morgan said they found no evidence that any information was used improperly.

Personal information that may have been viewed includes card numbers, dates of birth, user IDs, and email addresses. Those cardholders who are affected by the breach will be contacted by letter by JP Morgan. Those who see transactions they don’t recognize should contact the toll free number on the back of their card.
