Chase says the issue was detected on September 17, 2013. The bank notified the UIA of the incident on December 3, 2013.

For those who accessed Chase Bank's website between mid-July and mid-September, about 8,500 UIA debit card users may have been affected.

The personal information that could have been exposed includes social security numbers, bank account numbers, passwords, home and e-mail addresses and phone numbers.

Chase will send out letters by e-mail to each customer affected.
