Ocasio-Cortez encourages followers to apply for $125 Equifax payments, but they might never see that money

Democratic New York Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez tweeted Friday that those affected by a 2017 Equifax data leak should quickly apply for $125 in cash payouts, but the likelihood that anyone receives that amount of money decreased drastically because of her call to action.

Ocasio-Cortez tweeted out a link to the website to file claims against the credit reporting agency.

“Everyone: go get your check from Equifax! $125 is a nice chunk of change,” Ocasio-Cortez tweeted. “Get that money and pay off a bill, sock it away, take a day off, treat yourself, whatever you’d like – but cash 👏🏿 that 👏🏽 check! 👏🏻 💸 It takes one minute.”

Equifax settled with the Federal Trade Commission this week for $700 million and agreed to generate a $575 million fund, though only about $31 million has been appropriated for cash payments.
