Safeguard Your Account and Personal Information


To protect against the misuse of your personal information, we recommend that you consider placing a security alert on your credit bureau file.  If you are enrolling in a credit monitoring service, you may wish to do so before placing the security alert.  A security alert marker would cause any issuer of credit to use additional scrutiny for any request for new or increased credit.  This provides a significant layer of protection; however, it may limit your ability to get “instant credit” such as the offers often available at retail stores.  You must contact one of the credit bureaus, below, directly to request an alert.

We recommend that you also take these additional precautions with your accounts:
• Review account activity often, for at least the next 12 months, and report any suspicious activity immediately to the appropriate financial institution.
• Place password protection on all your depository accounts.
• If you suspect someone is using your information for fraudulent activity, you can contact the Federal Trade Commission’s Identity Theft Hotline at 1-877-ID-Theft (1-877-438-4338).

 

We suggest you periodically check your credit report to ensure all your information is correct.  To obtain a free credit report once a year, visit www.annualcreditreport.com or call 1-877-322-8228.
