Protect your child’s financial future

​As parents, we want to keep our children safe from any harm. That includes harm from identity theft, which can lead to compromised credit scores and financial ruin, before your child even gets his/her first job! Take steps to minimize the risk of identity theft by setting up credit freezes on your child’s social security number, or getting an IRS identity protection PIN that will prevent fraudulent use of your child’s identity.
