The nine digits identity thieves just love.
Your Social Security number (SSN) is the nine-digit number representing you. Considered the “cream of the crop” by identity thieves, a compromised SSN can lead to big problems. Criminals can use your SSN to apply for a loan, open an account, apply for a job—all in YOUR name, ruining your credit or worse. Armed with a bit more information, they can even drain your existing accounts. With a few precautions, you can help avoid becoming a victim.

WHAT TO DO IF YOUR SOCIAL SECURITY NUMBER IS COMPROMISED
It’s important to talk to the SSA if you have reason to believe your Social Security number has been compromised, even if you don’t yet see any evidence of financial fraud. A thief could be planning to steal your tax refund, or to obtain employment or credit in your name.
No problem. Just phone our Contact Center at 877.254.9328, available 24/7, and a UNIFY Representative will assist you.
