What else can I do to help minimize my risk of identity theft?

Keep important documents safe. Don't carry extra credit cards, Social Security cards, birth certificates or passports, if not needed. Consider opening a Visions Federal Credit Union Safe Deposit Box. Stop by your local branch to inquire about availability.

Think before you share. Be wary of suspicious messages, links, and requests for personal information.

Consider investing in a shredder. Shred your receipts, credit card offers, bank statements, returned checks and any other sensitive information before throwing it away.

Cover your bases. Ensure that your employer, landlord, and anyone else with access to your personal data keeps your records safe.

Read your credit report. Make sure your credit reports are accurate. If you spot an inaccuracy, follow up.

Keep your SSN under wraps. Do not print or write down your SSN on any document that could fall into the hands of identity thieves, like checks.

Don't use weak passwords. Using passwords that include a mix of letters, numbers, and special characters makes it harder for identity thieves to crack these codes.
