What Happened?

Assurance IQ, LLC, headquartered in Seattle, Washington, is an insurance company providing a range of insurance policies, including Medicare coverage, health insurance, life insurance, auto insurance, and home insurance. With a workforce exceeding 1,100 employees, Assurance IQ boasts an annual revenue of approximately $826 million.

On February 12, 2024, Assurance IQ became aware of a situation in which one of its agents inappropriately used their credentials to access Assurance’s agent systems, subsequently disclosing information about specific consumers for unauthorized purposes. As a result, the employee’s access was promptly revoked, leading to their termination, and an immediate investigation was launched. Subsequent confirmation revealed that the employee had accessed information pertaining to policyholders, beneficiaries, and potential customers without authorization, spanning from April 1, 2022, to January 11, 2024. On March 4, 2024, Assurance IQ sent data breach notification letters to those individuals whose information had been compromised in the breach.
