The last thing a military family needs to worry about is identity fraud. Unfortunately, deployed military personnel can be an appealing target for identity thieves because it is more likely that the fraud will go undetected. If you are active military, follow these tips to prevent ID theft while deployed:

  1. Continue to be diligent about checking financial records and accounts for fraud
  2. Pull your free annual credit report once every four months (alternating credit bureaus each time) from as this is the only free website for retrieving a credit report
  3. If you will be out of the country, place an Active Duty Alert on your credit report through one of the credit bureaus
