What is Identity Theft?
Identity Theft is a federal crime. It occurs when someone uses your personal information without your knowledge or permission for financial or other gain.
One of the fastest growing crimes in America; the Bureau of Justice Statistics estimates that nearly 26 million people, or about 10% of all U.S. residents age 16 or older, reported that they had been victims of identity theft during the prior 12 months.
It has topped the U.S. Federal Trade Commission’s ranking of consumer complaints for over 15 years. Prime targets include children, college students, military members, veterans, and seniors, but it can happen to anyone at any time.
Letter from the President
We all start a new year with good intentions. We “resolve” to do better for ourselves. Whether our resolution is to remove unwanted stress or pounds or to increase family time or retirement savings, we all know that “this year” is going to be the year we succeed!
Now that we’ve had a few months to work on ourselves, our calendars, and/or our finances, let’s take a little time during the month of March to check our progress; hold ourselves accountable.
If increasing your retirement savings was one of your resolutions, let us help you start and stay on track. Ask yourself, “Are there any areas in which I could trim expenses and reallocate that money to a retirement account?” Keep in mind, even the smallest amount is better than nothing!
