  • Identity Theft Prevention

    Jun 20, 2013

    Protecting against identity theft in a modern society full of impersonal, financial transactions is an important issue to both civilians and military personnel. In particular, military personnel and retirees remain highly vulnerable to identity theft. The magnitude of preventing against stolen identities is more apparent when one examines the lost savings, time, and effort to repair a financial reputation following the theft. Preventing identity theft is preferable for obvious reasons, but it requires diligence. There are many government sites available to offer advice and guidance on how to protect against identity theft and what to do when identity theft occurs. The government website (www.usa.gov/topics/money/identity-theft/prevention.shtml) features advice on how to guard against identity theft for just about every type of identity thief. The IRS also has tips on its website (www.irs.gov/uac/Identity-Protection) to prevent identity theft, and it has several links to other sources that are helpful in identity theft prevention and resolution. Some of those links are to the FTC (www.identitytheft.gov), the SSA (http://ssa-custhelp.ssa.gov/app/answers/detail/a_id/329), and applicable law enforcement (www.ic3.gov/default.aspx). The following suggestions from those sources should help to guard against identity theft.
