What Happened at WebTPA?

On April 26, 2024, WebTPA Employer Services, LLC filed a notice with the Attorney General of California after concluding that the company was targeted in a recent data breach that could have impacted a large number of individuals.

In their notice, WebTPA explains that the incident resulted in an unauthorized party being able to access Gerber Life customers’ sensitive information. WebTPA has begun sending out data breach notification letters to all individuals whose information was affected. There was a second notice posted on May 8, and others after that on various state websites.

The company says on their website that on December 28, 2023, they detected suspicious activity on the WebTPA network. The company launched an investigation with the help of a third-party cybersecurity firm and notified federal law enforcement.

The initial data breach investigation determined that an unauthorized actor may have obtained personal information between April 18 and April 23, 2023. WebTPA has informed benefit plans and insurance companies about the incident and the potential widespread exposure of personal information. The leaked information may have included the following:
