Social Security Identity Theft
Social Security identity theft occurs when your Social Security number (SSN) is stolen and the perpetrator uses it for financial reward or accesses opportunities and services available to Social Security holders. Thieves can access your taxes, work history, bank accounts, credit cards, loans, government benefits and sometimes your medical records.
It is important that you secure this information to keep your SSN safe from criminals whose main purpose is to use it for personal gain.
