More than 90,000 people in Iowa may have their personal information at risk, part of an insurance breach that also impacts more than a million people across the country.
The breach affects customers of Nationwide Insurance and Allied Insurance, and even some people who aren't customers.
Nationwide Insurance started sending out notices to impacted people a couple weeks ago.
If you have questions, there's a hotline -- 1-800-760-1125.
In a statement, Iowa Attorney General said, "Many Iowans are probably confused about how they could have gotten caught up in this massive data breach. That's because sometime over the last year or so someone may have sought a competitive insurance quote through a company or third party agent, and that agent may have obtained quotes from several companies, including Nationwide, on their behalf. In fact, they may not have even realized the agent checked with Nationwide," Miller added. "To get that quote, the agent provided the consumer's personal information to Nationwide, and that's what we now know has been stolen."
