BATON ROUGE, La. (AP) — The state says JP Morgan Chase has notified it of a data breach that could affect those using pre-paid debit cards issued for income tax refunds, unemployment benefits or other payments through the Department of Children and Family Services.

The Department of Revenue said Friday the bank notified the state a day earlier that personally identifiable information it holds under contracts with state agencies may have been breached. JP Morgan Chase said it does not know if or to what extent information on Louisiana citizens may have been exposed.

JP Morgan Chase issues pre-paid debit cards for certain state agencies, including for income tax refunds, unemployment benefits paid by the Louisiana Workforce Commission and Child Support Enforcement and STEP Supportive Services and Child Care Assistance provider payments paid by DCFS.
