The personal information of thousands of U.S. Steel Mining retirees and their dependents has been lost in the mail.

Benefits Administration Services said Friday that a password-protected CD it had put in the mail in August never reached its destination. BAS is a provider of benefits administration services for the United States Steel and Carnegie Pension Fund.
