Protecting Yourself if Your Identity is Stolen

Learn about what to do to protect yourself if your identity is stolen.

Identity theft is when someone steals your personal information, such as your Social Security Number, bank information, or passwords.

Victims of identity theft can suffer from stress and frustration, have money stolen from them, and may find their credit rating damaged. This can affect your ability to get a loan, rent an apartment, or take out new lines of credit. You can minimize damage and make sure you’re not held responsible for debts illegally taken on in your name by taking immediate action.
