The Tukwila, Wash.-based BECU began notifying impacted members on July 25 of a third-party data breach that uncovered the names, Social Security numbers, addresses and account information of an undisclosed number of members at the $29.5 billion credit union.

According to statements from BECU, the data breach was discovered on June 6 after the credit union’s printing vendor disclosed that sensitive personal and identifiable information belonging to BECU members had been compromised.
