Prevention is the best way to avoid identity theft:
- Shred financial documents and papers with personal information before discarding.
- Protect your Social Security number. Don’t carry your Social Security card in your wallet or write your Social Security number on a check.
- Don’t give out personal information on the phone, through the mail, or over the Internet unless you know who you’re dealing with.
AARP is a nonprofit, nonpartisan membership organization for people 50+ with 148,000 members in Hawaii.
