The Holy Grail - Protect Your Social Security Account
Your holy grail of identity is your Social Security number, which you have given out to so many places that you entrust with your privacy and safety of personal information. The scariest part of all the identify theft that occurs is when someone else tries to use your Social Security number to set up an account in your name. This theft by assuming and changing your profile through the Social Security Administration (SSA) is a nightmare to correct. I strongly recommend that you create a “my Social Security” account at https://www.ssa.gov to keep your Social Security number safe and limit the risk that a stolen Social Security number can be used against you.
