Security

When preparing to travel, it’s critical that you take steps to keep your money and your information safe from fraud. Bring items that can help you safely pay for necessities, like a credit card, debit card and small amount of cash, along with phone numbers you might need if you lose your essentials. Leave items at home that might give away important information, like your checkbook, social security card or birth certificate. Take extra precautions with your laptop or mobile devices, avoid public Wi-Fi and computers and make sure you tell your bank that you’re traveling. When you get home, check statements and your credit report and look out for suspicious activity. Contact Mission Fed to get more security tips.
