Have You Taken Steps to Protect Your Credit?

It may seem like forever ago, but it was only a little over a year (Sept 2017) when we were all shocked by the major Equifax Data Breach. The breach resulted in more than 145 million people’s personal information, like Social Security numbers and birth dates, being compromised. That is almost half of the entire United States! And, yet, even more worrisome, AARP found that just 14% of the 2,000 compromised individuals it surveyed actually took steps to freeze their credit.
