State Employees Offered Credit Protection After Foulup

NASHVILLE, Tenn. (AP) — The state of Tennessee is offering credit protection to nearly 2,000 employees who canceled their health or dental insurance after officials mailed out their personal information in October.
Each mailing included a certificate containing the information of the recipient and three other letters aimed at other members of the plan. State officials say 1,770 certificates were mailed to the wrong address.
Each included name, address, employee ID number, healthcare insurance coverage dates and Social Security number, which was not identified as such but appeared at the bottom of each certificate.
The state is offering affected employees a year’s credit protection through Lifelock free for one year. Each has been mailed a letter about the program and has until Dec. 28 to sign up.
