Medical Mutual of Ohio reports missing personal information of 36,000 Ohio retirees


Mary Vanac reports:

Eleven computer disks containing personal information for more than 36,000 Ohio retirees and employees are missing, likely somewhere in the U.S. postal system.

Cleveland-based medical insurer Medical Mutual of Ohio reported the missing disks early Thursday afternoon, stressing that none of the information appears to have fallen into the wrong hands.


Medical Mutual declined to give details about the types of member information contained on the lost disks.

Medical Mutual said it was notified by four retiree groups — the School Employees Retirement System of Ohio, State Teachers Retirement System of Ohio, Ohio Police and Fire Pension Fund and Ohio State Highway Patrol Retirement System — that disks routinely mailed between the insurer’s Columbus office and the retirement systems, also located in Columbus, didn’t arrive this month.
