"Once More Unto the Breach, Dear Friends"

On March 24, 2022, a Texas Department of Insurance news release notified system participants of a data security breach. Names, addresses, birth dates, phone numbers, whole or partial Social Security numbers, and specific information about work comp claims were compromised by a TDI web application that managed such information.  

TDI became aware of the problem on January 4, 2022, removed the application, and commenced an investigation.  Those with a new work comp claim between March 2019 and January 2022 will receive letters apprising them of the breach.  Free credit monitoring for one year, including identity theft restoration and fraud consultation, will be offered to such individuals, as well as to those whose claims date back to 2006 and were affected.  

Concerned participants may determine if their claim information has been compromised by calling 855-248-7100.
