Child Identity Theft

Child identity theft is on the rise. Reports show that children are being targeted 35 times more frequently than adults. Sadly, the younger the child, the more vulnerable to identity theft.

Targeting young children gives criminals more time to freely use the child's identity undetected. Parents are now being encouraged to monitor their child's credit report just as they would their own. Order a free credit report once a year for your child. And, when they get old enough, educate them on how to protect their personal information.

Child Identity Theft - What to Know, What to Do, a publication by the Federal Trade Commission (FTC), offers a wealth of information for parents on how to protect their child's identity. It also gives tips on:

  • How to Safely Dispose of Personal Information
  • How to Share Safety Tips with Your Child
  • Warning Signs of Child Identity Theft
  • How to Check For Your Child's Credit Report
  • Steps to Take if Your Child's Identity Has Been Stolen
  • How to Place an Inital Fraud Alert
  • How to Request a Credit Freeze
  • Instructions on Filing a Report With the FTC
  • How to File a Police Report
  • Information on Medical Indentity Theft
  • Tax Related Identity Theft, and more.

Download a copy of Child Identity Theft - What to Know, What to Do or stop by your local branch to pick up a copy.
