Investigation Update

November 7, 2017

IPERS is working with several agencies in the aftermath of the cyber crime that was discovered last week. Social Security numbers can no longer be used to register for My Account (member online access), and IPERS is monitoring all new online registrations and failed login attempts.

IPERS is working with Iowa-based FBI agents and the Iowa OCIO (Office of the Chief Information Officer), who continue to investigate the crime.

The criminals were able to carry out this crime because they had access to personal data of the members affected. IPERS recommends taking steps to protect yourself from identity theft, even if you were not personally affected.
