Notification Letters Mailed in Data Security Incident [posted 7/20/23]

Earlier this week, TRS retirees and beneficiary payees affected by the PBI data security incident were mailed notification letters offering free credit monitoring and identity restoration services. In addition, a toll-free hotline has been established at (866) 373-9057 to answer questions about the mailing and the data security incident. Representatives from Kroll, the company administering the credit monitoring services, will staff the hotline Monday through Friday from 9:00 a.m. to 6:30 p.m., Eastern Time.
The notification letters contain instructions for enrolling in the free protection services. TRS’ logo is on the letter, but the return address shows “Secure Processing Center” because the letters were produced and mailed by Kroll. According to Kroll, delivery of the letter could take between 5 and 20 days from July 18. For recipients living outside the U.S., notification letters will be mailed next week. 
TRS Member Services Representatives do not have access to individual notification letters and will refer callers to the Kroll hotline for any related inquiries.
As a reminder, TRS’ systems were not affected by this global data security incident. Retirees’ pensions are safe, and it is safe to use TRS’ website. We continue to hold PBI accountable and work with all our vendors to protect our retirees and beneficiaries. 

Update on Data Security Incident [Posted 7/10/23]

This is an update to our June 27 announcement about the external data security incident affecting TRS retirees and beneficiary payees.

Despite TRS’ best efforts to accelerate the process and ensure accountability, PBI Research Services (the vendor responsible for the data security incident and for notifying affected individuals) has not met the early-July target for mailing notifications or establishing a toll-free hotline for TRS member questions. TRS was informed today that mailing of the notification letters is expected to begin on July 20.

Personal information for TRS retirees and beneficiary payees was compromised in a global data security incident impacting PBI, a third-party vendor that has helped TRS identify deceased payees. At TRS’ insistence, PBI agreed to provide affected individuals with access to 24 months of free credit monitoring and identity restoration services. TRS recognizes the need for timely, accurate communications regarding this matter and will actively engage with PBI until they meet their commitment to our membership.

TRS deeply regrets this external incident, and we are doing all we can with our vendors to protect our retirees and beneficiaries. Please note that TRS’ systems were not affected by the data security incident. Retirees’ pensions are safe, and it is safe to use TRS’ website.

Data Security Incident Affects TRS Retirees [posted 6/27/23]

TRS was recently notified that TRS payees’ personal information was involved in a data security incident affecting PBI Research Services, one of our third-party vendors. This incident—which is related to the MOVEit Transfer application—occurred outside of TRS, and TRS’ systems were not compromised.

However, our retirees’ and beneficiary payees’ personal information was exposed in this global data security incident, which has affected thousands of organizations.

The exposed information includes name, Social Security number, partial address information, and date of birth. TRS began notifying affected individuals about the data security incident by email on June 27. PBI has agreed to offer affected individuals access to 24 months of free credit monitoring and identity restoration services.  Detailed instructions and a thorough explanation of the incident will be provided to affected members in a letter that we expect to mail in early July.

In the meantime, TRS will post information and updates on our website. An external toll-free hotline will also begin operating in early July to answer questions about the incident. TRS Member Services Representatives do not have additional information about the data security incident, so please consult our website for updates instead of contacting TRS.

Although TRS’ systems were not affected by this incident, we are reviewing additional safeguards for our website and monitoring for suspicious activity. We encourage members to remain vigilant against incidents of identity theft and fraud and watch for suspicious activity in their own accounts.

TRS values our members’ data security, and we deeply regret that this external data security incident affected some of our members.
