You may remember the Equifax data breach back in 2017, when 147 million consumers were affected. Many spent time and money repairing their credit after their Social Security numbers, birth dates and other personal information became public.

Now a settlement with Equifax has been reached that should benefit those affected. From repayment for time and money spent, to payment for credit monitoring services going forward.

Also, as part of the settlement, Equifax is required to pay for 10 years of free credit monitoring services, or a $125 cash payment to each consumer to "hire their own credit monitoring firm." Consumers are also entitled to additional credit reports each year.
