Minor Monitoring Now Available

Children's identities are considered extremely valuable by thieves because they essentially offer a "clean slate". Children have no credit reports, so thieves could potentially use their identities for years without being detected. The longer the ID theft goes undetected, the harder it may be to resolve, and the more difficult it may be to secure credit, including student loans, when needed. Our ID TheftSmart Minor Monitoring service allows parents/guardians to enroll up to four minors under the age of 18 per adult, to monitor for potentially fraudulent activity, and be notified when names, aliases, or addresses become associated with a monitored child's SSN.
