To Do List When Social Security Number Is Stolen

  •   Notify the Office of The Inspector General
    Notify the Office of the Inspector General if your SSN has been fraudulently used
  •   Contact the Social Security Administration (SSA)

     If you believe that your Social Security number has been used to fraudulently obtain welfare or Social Security benefits, visit the SSA Office of the Inspector General website at www.socialsecurity.gov/oig or call the SSA Fraud Hotline at 800-269-0271. In an extreme case, you may be able to change your Social Security number, but it is difficult to do and may not resolve the problem.

  •   Contact the credit bureaus.
    Call or visit the websites of the three major credit bureaus and ask that they issue a fraud alert and attach a statement to your credit report.
