I have been hacked and need to change the Social Security a/c #
Q) I have been hacked and need to change the Social Security a/c # where my monthly check is electronically deposited. How do I do that?
A) If you believe your Social Security account has been hacked, it’s important to act quickly to protect your information and prevent further unauthorized access. Here are the steps you can take to change the Social Security account number where your monthly check is deposited:
- Contact the Social Security Administration (SSA) immediately: You can call the SSA at 1-800-772-1213 (TTY 1-800-325-0778) or visit your local SSA office to report the suspected hack and request to change your account number.
- Verify your identity: The SSA will need to verify your identity before making any changes to your account. You will need to provide personal information such as your full name, Social Security number, date of birth, and mailing address.
- Request to change your account number: Once your identity is verified, you can request to change the account number where your monthly check is deposited. The SSA may ask you to provide documentation to support your request, such as a police report or a letter from your bank confirming the unauthorized access.
- Follow up: After making the request, it’s important to follow up with the SSA to ensure that the change has been made and your monthly check is being deposited into the correct account.
Additionally, it’s important to take steps to secure your information and prevent further hacks. You should change your passwords on all accounts that may have been compromised, monitor your credit reports, and consider placing a fraud alert or freeze on your credit files.
