I belong to you, but am used more by others. What am I?

Give up? Answer: your name. Although people do use your name more than you, it becomes more personal when they claim your name or social security number as their own. Name, birth date, social security number, and family information encompass all that we are as individuals. However, identity theft is more prevalent than we care to admit. My advice: Take 4 minutes of your day and listen to this video from Money Talk News and consider the additional suggestions to strengthen your defense against the risk of identity theft.

  1. Watch your kids’ credit report
  2. Watch your kids’ social security report
  3. Watch your kids’ medical records
  4. Watch your senior parents – especially in Florida!
  5. Be careful on social media!

Above all, be aware of the possibility of identity theft and take a proactive approach to minimize the risk.
