If you have been a victim of identity theft, and you provide the credit reporting agency with a valid police report, it cannot charge you to place, lift or remove a security freeze. In all other cases, a credit reporting agency may charge up to $5 each to place, lift or remove a security freeze.
How long does it take for a security freeze to be in effect?
After three business days from receiving your letter, the credit reporting agencies will place a freeze providing credit reports to potential creditors.
After five business days from receiving your letter to place a freeze on your account, the credit reporting agencies will send you a confirmation letter containing a unique PIN or password that can be used to authorize the removal or lifting of a security freeze.
Who can see my credit file if it is frozen?
When you have a security freeze on your credit file, certain entities still have access to it. Your report can still be released to your existing creditors or to collection agencies acting on their behalf, as well as new creditors who may make offers of credit. Government agencies may also access your credit file in response to court or administrative orders, a subpoena, or a search warrant.
