Are you impacted by the Accellion data breach?

Data security breach and the WA State Employment Security Department

Fraud Defender helps you if your identity is stolen

It has come to our attention that The Office of the Washington State Auditor (SAO) recently had a data breach with the file transfer service Accellion. The stolen data files contained personal information of Washington state residents who filed unemployment insurance claims in 2020. 

TwinStar Credit Union is not involved in the Accellion data breach. No member info was stolen from TwinStar Credit Union.

However, if you had filed for unemployment with the Employment Security Department (ESD) in 2020 or shared confidential information with the Office of the Washington State Auditor, you may be affected by the breach. SAO is currently in the process of arranging resources to help affected individuals to take measures to protect their identity. More information about the breach is available at The Office of the Washington State Auditor website:

Additionally, you may contact us at 1.800.258.3115 if you feel you may be impacted by the breach. We can help you take actions to reduce the chances of identity theft or fraud on your accounts.
