How does an unexpected $125 in your pocket sound? If you could use a little extra dough between paychecks, it's worth taking a couple of seconds to see if you're entitled to $125, as part of the Equifax data breach settlement. You may have heard about this - millions of people had their information compromised back in 2017, and as a result, it could mean some money coming your way...if you claim it. According to WMTW, Equifax will be shelling out $700 million to people who were affected.

All you have to do is go to this website, and enter your last name, and the last six digits of your social security number.

Because I'm writing about this, of course I had to check if I was eligible. I wouldn't go and send you to do something that I wouldn't do! And guess what...I was eligible for the payment! It took me about two minutes to file the claim, and apparently I have a check for $125 on the way. Sweet!

Check the site to see if you're eligible, and let us know if you're getting some money!
