The Illinois Department of Healthcare and Family Services issued a warning that more than 500 of its clients may have had sensitive personal information taken by thieves.

A briefcase full of information, including social security and Medicaid recipient numbers, was taken in a burglary at a field worker's home back in August.

The department is working to notify all the affected individuals.
