Target data breach may affect those on Social Security

By  | 

SEATTLE, Wash. (WEAU) -- The Target customer data breach may be affecting people who collect Social Security.

On Tuesday, KING-TV in Seattle reported that people who used their Social Security U.S. Direct Express card during the Target security breach will likely receive a call from their bank, saying that a new card is on the way. Some accounts may be frozen during the 7-10 days it takes to receive the new card.

Many card holders rely on the Social Security money exclusively. For information on credit monitoring from Target, click on the "related link" on this story.
