CONCORD, N.H. — New Hampshire’s attorney general says the credit reporting company Equifax says 622,558 residents have had their information exposed.

Nationally, 143 million U.S. consumers may have had their personal information compromised between mid-May and July, 2017. The information included names, Social Security numbers, birth dates, addresses and, in some instances, driver’s license numbers.

Equifax has established a dedicated website, where residents can determine if their information was exposed.

Democrats in the U.S. House and Senate have called on Equifax to pull back on its requirement that anyone who signs up for credit monitoring give up their right to sue Equifax in a class-action lawsuit.
