Indiana welfare clients’ info possibly breached

INDIANAPOLIS — Indiana officials say more than 187,000 welfare clients’ personal information including Social Security numbers might have been breached.

The Indiana Family and Social Services Administration said Monday it’s notifying the clients that their personal information — including name, benefits, monthly income and medical information — might have been disclosed to other clients because of a programming error by contractor RCR Technology Corp. It says the Social Security numbers of nearly 4,000 clients might have been shared with other clients.

FSSA says the error was made April 6 and affected correspondence sent from then until May 21. It says the error was discovered May 10 and corrected May 21.

Indiana Democratic Party Chairman John Zody is questioning why it took FSSA so long to notify the public of the security breach.
