Heartland Payment Systems Security Breach01/20/2009
BPC has been made aware of a card security breach involving Heartland Payment Systems during the period of 5/15/2008 through 11/13/2008. No personally identifiable information such as SSNs, PINs, or addresses has been compromised. BPC advises all card participants to continue the practice of reviewing all card transactions on the Benefits Card website. Please notify us by phone or make use of the fraud tools on the Benefits Card website if you notice any erroneous activity so that we may assist you in having your card replaced.
Heartland is a payment processor which is not affiliated with BPC or Metavante (BPC's card vendor). BPC has today received notification of many cards which may have been affected and we will be contacting those individuals. BPC is relaying this information as a service to our cardholders and out of an over abundance of caution.
