It is extremely important that you closely monitor your credit more now than ever. The following link is the article on the breach and the second link is where you can see if you are potentially at risk. There are many agencies that monitor the use of your credit as well as when your Social Security number is queried. I would recommend subscribing to one of these services asap.
