As you may be protecting your personal data you should also be protecting your children. Since children are financial “blank slates” their information is an ideal target for thieves. Unfortunately, parents may not realize their child’s identity has been stolen until the child tries t open a bank account or apply for a job.
Here are 4 ways to protect your child from identity theft:
Don’t give away their personal information over the phone or online
Keep their identity documents, such as their birth certificate and social security card in a safe or locked filing cabinet.
Teach your children to protect their personal information.
If you suspect your child’s identity has been stolen, contact the police and credit bureaus.
