If Public Employees Credit Union (“PECU”) Notified You of a Data Incident, You May be Eligible For Benefits From a Class Action Settlement.

A proposed settlement has been reached in a class action lawsuit known as Scott Boyd v. Public Employees Credit Union, Case No. 1:22-cv-00825-LY ("lawsuit"), filed in the United States District Court for the Western District of Texas, Austin Division.

This lawsuit arises out of unauthorized access to PECU’s systems and certain files containing sensitive information about PECU’s current and former customers including, but not limited to names, addresses, email addresses, telephone numbers, dates of birth, financial account information (e.g. account numbers, credit, and or debit cards), social security numbers, and other types of personally identifiable information (collectively “PII”), which was discovered by PECU on or about April 26, 2022 (the “Data Incident”). PECU disagrees with Plaintiff’s claims and denies any wrongdoing.

All Settlement Class Members can receive the following benefits from the settlement: (1) up to $500 for documented out-of-pocket expenses, (2) reimbursement for up to three (3) hours of lost time spent dealing with the Data Incident ($20 per hour), and (3) reimbursement for extraordinary losses up to $2,500 for documented expenses. PECU also agrees to provide various security related improvements.

Settlement Class Members who previously enrolled in the credit monitoring product offered by PECU will have that term automatically extended for one (1) year. Settlement Class Members who did not previously enroll for credit monitoring shall have the ability to claim one (1) year of credit monitoring by the same service previously offered by PECU.

PECU will also provide various security enhancements.

You are included in this settlement as a Settlement Class Member if you were mailed written notification that indicated your PII was potentially compromised as a result of the Data Incident discovered on or about April 26, 2022.
