Protect Yourself against Fraud and Identity Theft

We recognize that keeping your personal information private is extremely important for a variety of reasons. In an effort to help you do just that, here are several tips and suggestions to help keep your information safe:

  • DO NOT give personal information on the phone, through mail, or over the Internet unless self-initiated. This includes credit card numbers, financial information, or social security number.
  • Safeguard all identification, credit cards or other documents (including account statements) containing personal or financial information.
  • Regularly examine your financial statements and report discrepancies immediately to your financial institution and/or law enforcement if applicable.
  • Do not carry more identification (driver’s license, social security card, passport, etc.) credit or debit cards than you will use.
  • Shred or otherwise properly dispose of documents that contain your personal information.

Security of your account and your private information begins with you.
