    Many of us were affected by the hack of OPM last year.  This is just a reminder to continue to monitor your credit to protect your finances and your ability to keep your security clearance.

    Review a Copy of Your Credit Report

    AnnualCreditReport.com is the official site to get your free annual credit reports. This right is guaranteed by Federal law.

    Federal law allows you to:

    Get a free copy of your credit report every 12 months from each credit reporting company.

    Ensure that the information on all of your credit reports is correct and up to date.

    Visit https://www.annualcreditreport.com/ to get a free copy of your credit report. 

     

    Add A Credit Freeze to Your Credit File If You Believe You Are at Risk

    A credit freeze (sometimes called a security freeze) is designed to prevent the information in your credit file from being reported to others. Because most creditors will check your credit report before opening a new account a credit freeze is an effective means of protecting yourself against identity thieves who open accounts in your name.

    There are some inconveniences associated with having a credit freeze / security freeze on your credit file when you try to establish new credit yourself, but for some people the additional protection provided by a credit freeze may be worth the associated inconvenience.

    The Federal Trade Commission provides more information on credit freezes here:

    If you choose to place a credit freeze on your credit file, you will have to contact each of the major credit reporting agencies to complete the process.
