Indiana will be getting a big chunk of cash in a settlement with Equifax.

Attorney General Curtis Hill’s office says the state will get $19.5 million in a settlement over Indiana’s lawsuit against Equifax, one of the world’s largest credit-reporting bureaus, over its massive 2017 data breach that affected about 3.9-million Hoosiers.

Indiana was one of two states that chose to file separate lawsuits instead of joining a multi-state settlement in July 2019.

Hill’s office says the full amount of the state’s settlement will provide restitution payments to impacted consumers.
