California Attorneys, Administrative Law Judges and Hearing Officers in State Employment
Dear Member of Bargaining Unit 2:
Late Wednesday, health insurer Anthem (one of the health care insurance companies available to State of California employees) reported that hackers have breached its computer system and that the personal information of up to 80 million customers is possibly at risk. According to Anthem, the hackers "obtained personal information from . . . current and former members such as their names, birthdays, medical IDs/social security numbers, street addresses, email addresses and employment information, including income data." Anthem has indicated that it plans to "individually notify current and former members whose information has been accessed," and promised to "provide credit monitoring and identity protection services free of charge."

If you have any questions about this data breach, please contact Anthem directly at (877) 263-7995. As an additional precaution, Anthem members may also wish to place a fraud alert on their credit files by contacting the three major credit reporting agencies:
