MICHIGAN, (WNEM) -

Michigan families affected by the Target data breach in 2013 may get a payout.

Attorney General Bill Schuette announced Michigan is among 46 states that have negotiated a more than $18 million settlement with Target.

“Keeping customers’ personal information safe must be a top priority for all retail companies,” Schuette said. “Target’s data breach broke some of the trust they had built with consumers and hopefully their willingness to change their security practices will restore faith in the company.”  

The breach compromised the personal information of up to 70 million shoppers.

Michigan will receive just under $400,000.

There is no word on how the money will be divided.
