State Treasurer Denise Nappier says that some personal identity data on tax-refund debit cards may have been exposed during a security breach on the computer servers of JPMorgan Chase, which oversees Connecticut’s debit card program.

The breach covered multiple states, exposing as many as 465,000 accounts, over 14-thousand Connecticut accounts. About 7-thousand of those involved taxpayers seeking refunds, with the rest involving people seeking unemployment benefits or child-support payments.

Nappier says they’re holding JPMorgan accountable and are asking the bank for immediate action in safeguarding the private personal information of those affected.
