I got it and threw it in the shredder. I've had identity theft protection (Lifelock, not what they wanted to give me) since the VA lost my records. I'm kind of getting used to having my personal information stolen periodically. I have a 7 year lock on my credit bureau records due to an identity theft incident in 2011, so this is all rather routine for me now.

And which of those entities gave you lifetime monitoring? The OPM breach gives monitoring until Dec 31, 2018

va until 2020
opm is 2020
tricare is 2020

i figure by then i am pretty much making worm food :biggrinjester: the rate they are going...Va and OPM will screw up again.
VA is worst, as safeguarding data, want to see the picture of the va person with our medical records in the backseat of her unlocked car?
I filed a complaint and provided pics and date of the breach at private clininc used to supplement va docs .
OPM, your kidding, my opm info has been compromised twice in 8 years on their end. I think someone needs to screen the investigators better.

I received it too and will use their protection plan. They even got the finger prints according to the statement printed.

Good point. I believe the lady in charge took some heat for not performing a task for several month to fix a security breach and there are some more issues which may never be addressed.

My OPM letter did not have a termination date, did yours? I called the number and asked when the monitoring expired and they said December 31, 2018

I got a letter this week too. Even though I have had LifeLock for several years since a credit card number got stolen at a restaurant, I signed up for the credit monitoring anyway. Can't hurt to have more than one. The only BI I can think of for me in the last 10 years would be for my 03FFL. Before that, there would have been a couple for work.
