OPM Awards Contract For OPM Background Investigations Breach


The Office of Personnel Management (OPM) and the Department of Defense (DoD) on Tuesday announced a contract was awarded to provide identity theft protection and credit monitoring to the 21.5 million individuals affected by the background investigations breach. 

First revealed on June 10, this massive breach involves the theft of Standard Forms 85, 85P, and 86 that are filled out by federal job applicants, employees, members of the military and contractors, as well as other background materials and records. 

As of Sept. 1, all affected individuals in the OPM background investigations breach are automatically covered—without taking any action—for identity restoration services and identity theft insurance. Individual notifications—which will be done mostly though U.S. mail—are slated to begin this month and continue over the next several weeks. NTEU will keep members updated as further details become available.

The union remains concerned about the long delay in notifying and providing protections to those affected and believes that three years or less of protection is inadequate. NTEU will continue to press for lifetime coverage as called for in our July 8 lawsuit against OPM and through congressional legislation.

Information regarding this incident and the response can be found on OPM’s website. Get resources, tips and information about NTEU’s efforts on this issue.
