Read about Identity Protection at VA
VA’s Office of Information Security is dedicated to protecting the sensitive data of Veterans beneficiaries, and all VA employees.
Every piece of personally identifiable information, whether it’s a Social Security number, date of birth, home address, etc., is more than just a number. It represents a person’s identity, livelihood, and personal or financial well-being.
VA’s More Than a Number identity protection program provides information to educate Veterans and their beneficiaries on how to protect themselves from identity theft. On this website, you will find a wide range of information on identity theft, how to spot it, ways to prevent it, and what to do if you suspect you are a victim. You can also browse through links to other useful identity theft resources from across the Web.
In addition, we have created a toll-free Identity Theft Resource Line for Veterans and their beneficiaries to call for more information or if they suspect that their identities may have been compromised. The toll-free number is 855-578-5492.
We hope that these More Than a Number resources provide another way for VA to help protect those that have protected this great country.
