WIESBADEN, Germany — Army officials say a CD containing the personal information of nearly 25,000 Non-Appropriated Fund retirees was lost in the mail.

The potentially compromised information contains names, Social Security numbers and other retirement data such as type of retirement, amount of life insurance carried, term data and dates of service. U.S. Army Installation Management Command officials say some records might also contain birthdates.

According to an Army release, the CD was lost in the mail between Alexandria, Va., and San Antonio, Texas, during the last week of August.

The Army said retirees who are at risk have been sent letters advising them of the data loss and actions they can take to protect their identities.

Retirees can call 210-466-1640 on weekdays to determine whether they were included in the database. The line is open 24 hours a day.

IMCOM and the Army’s Computer Emergency Readiness Team are conducting an investigation.
