Thanks for the link. Says I wasn't impacted. Sorry that you were and I hope it won't interfere with you getting your loan.



Of all the things I've lost, I miss my mind the most.

They don't come out and tell you if your data has been compromised, but they tell you if it definitely wasn't.

Mine was and I got the message to come back on the 11th. My son got the message that his wasn't impacted and to come back on the 14th.

I got the same but clicking the continue button brings me back to checking not completing sign up. May date was Sept 11, my husbands Sept 15.

Not sure how to complete the enrollment form or when? Anybody have a clue????

Thanks dopey for posting the link. I have the peace of mind of knowing that at least I wasn't affected by this particular event.

Sorry for the hassle for those affected.

I believe those are the two dates that you'll complete your enrollment forms.
Yours on Sept 11th and your husband's on Sept 15th.

I was not affected it said...but am still eligible for the free 1 year of credit monitoring which I'm going to get.
My date to complete my enrollment form is on Sept 15th.

Here's where you go when you DO go to complete your enrollment forms on the dates you were given:
faq.trustedidpremier.com
Then you click the link to continue through the enrollment process.

Hope that helps ANGEL :)
