The credit reporting agency will pay up to $700 million in fines and monetary relief to consumers over a massive 2017 data breach that affected more than 148 million people.

The proposed settlement, which is subject to approval by a federal court, was announced Monday by the company, the Federal Trade Commission, the Consumer Financial Protection Bureau and 50 states and territories.

The consumer data exposed in the breach included Social Security numbers, birthdates and addresses and, in some cases, driver’s license numbers.
