Protect Yourself and Your Money!

You play an important role in protecting your information. Here are a few steps you can take to protect your identity:

  • Add your phone numbers to the national Do Not Call Registry at www.donotcall.gov or by calling 1 (888) 382-1222. Since February 2008, these registered telephone numbers will no longer expire off the list.
  • Examine your financial institution statements immediately upon receipt to determine whether there were any unauthorized transactions. Report any unauthorized transactions that you find immediately to The Cecilian Bank.
  • Each year, you are entitled to one free credit report through www.annualcreditreport.com or by calling 1 (877) 322-8228.
  • Request a copy of your Social Security statements annually at www.ssa.gov/mystatement to be sure that no one else is using your social security number for employment.
  • Opt-out of pre-screened credit offers every five years by calling 1 (888) 567-8688 or at www.optoutprescreen.com.
