Note: Contrary to information on some social media sites, signing into the Equifax site to get free protections against identity theft does not mean you cannot participate in class action suits that may result from the data breach.
As always, we encourage our members to regularly review the transactions in your accounts. Immediately report any transactions you do not recognize to member services at 508-853-9966
Note: The protections offered by Equifax include a free copy of your Equifax credit report.
