Here’s the website to submit your claim with Equifax

You’ll enter your surname and the last six numbers of your social. I was impacted and claimed $125.

There’s $31 million to cover over 100 million of us. We’ll be lucky to get a check for a buck. I signed up anyway.

To get the $125 you have to certify that you have to "certify that I have credit monitoring and will have it for at least 6 months from today." AFAIK I haven't (unless my financial advisor does it—have to check with him).

A lot of credit cards offer this for free. You might already have it just by opting in. Or, sign up for Credit Karma.

Be aware that filing for the $125 compensation is not a guarantee that you will receive $125. That amount will be distributed until funds no longer support that amount, at which time smaller checks will be cut. There's no report of how many people have already submitted, but the pool of cash isn't big enough to give everyone $125.

More info here, if you can see it without paywall problems.

OK, thanks! I just signed up for credit reporting via our BoA account. So now I'm not lying.

Also put in a claim for my wife. So maybe we'll get $250? I'll believe it when I see the checks in the mail.

What isn't disclosed is that the sign-up site will also probably get breached and then it's back on the merry go round with your name, addy, year born, and most of your social security number.

Yup. "We got breached and all your info may have been stolen. Just in case it wasn't, please enter it all into this site and we promise it won't get stolen..."

[eligibility.equifaxbreachsettlement.com]

The request for six numbers from my SS# made me a little uncomfortable, so I went through this link ftc.gov/Equifax from a USA Today article on Equifax claims fraud, and it led me to a claims page — also identified as the claims administrator JND — that walked me through a process that never asked for any SS information.

Not sure what to make of that.

It's actually $380 or so million, but only the first $31 million or so will be paid in $125 checks.

Better. Well done. Thanks.

I actually saved the receipts for the credit freezes that I had to apply and I had copies of the confirmations as well. I had to redact some of the information on the PDFs though.

So $125, plus 3 hours work, plus $21 to activate a credit freeze on three credit agencies (Experian, Equifax, and TransUnion)

I went to the same site (original one posted by OP) through a time.com article.
The site listed is a eligibility checking tool.
The one through the USA link just sends you to the registration process without checking.
I wasn’t part of the hack so I didn’t fill out the rest of the info. My wife and her BIL were. My SIL and I were not.

3 hours work? What about the time lying in bed thinking about the best course of action, researching online, catching news programs on TV for info because it affected you, speaking with friends and family, etc.. In total, it could easily amount to 10 hours. It all translates to "work" ever since it directly affected you. You sure as heck weren't doing all that for fun.

Yup, I managed to only have to pay for the Experian freeze ($10), but it took a good amount of research to figure out how to do a free TransUnion freeze back then and Equifax was so screwed up I had to come back multiple times in order to sign up for their "TrustedID" program.
