New Legislature Allows for Freeze of Credit Report

Senate Bill 222 allows consumers to obtain a freeze on their credit report to protect themselves from identity theft. Credit bureaus may charge up to $10 for the security freeze, however, identity theft victims are not charged. The credit bureaus may charge consumers up to $12 each time the freeze is lifted. If you are a victim of ID Theft, it is required that you provide a police report.

To take advantage of the new law, Texans must notify each of the three national credit bureaus: Equifax, Experian and TransUnion, by certified mail and include proof of their identities in the letter.
