The city of Charlotte says the personal information of 5,220 current and former city employees and elected officials has been lost. The loss affects individuals who received health insurance from the city in early 2002. Two DVDs containing the Social Security numbers of the affected individuals failed to arrive at the offices of Towers Watson & Co., the city’s benefits consulting firm, in Atlanta. The discs also contained prescription-drug information for five individuals.
