This month's edition of HomesteadCS E-Newsletter includes: 

Attorney General is recommending credit on to find out more information

A credit freeze, also known as a security freeze, is a consumer right provided by Indiana law. Placing a security freeze on your credit reports can block an identity thief from opening a new account or obtaining credit in your name. A credit freeze keeps new creditors from accessing your credit report without your permission. If you activate a credit freeze, an identity thief cannot take out new credit in your name, even if the thief has your Social Security number or other personal information, because creditors cannot access your credit report.

Any Indiana resident can request a credit freeze free of charge. There is no fee for Indiana residents to place, temporarily lift, remove or request a new password or PIN. To place a freeze, either use each credit agency's online process or send a letter by certified mail to each of the three credit agencies:


Equifax Security Freeze
P.O. Box 105788
Atlanta, GA 30348


Experian Security Freeze
P.O. Box 9554
Allen, TX 75013


TransUnion LLC Security Freeze
P.O. Box 2000
Chester, PA 19022-2000

Our programs make clients aware of their options in order for them to make informed decisions. If further action is necessary, we work on the client's behalf to achieve the best possible solution.

Because we are certified by the State of Indiana and the U.S. Dept. of Housing and Urban Development (HUD), our clients have access to additional resources that for-profit organizations are unable to offer.

With the help of grants and charitable donations, nearly all of our programs are free.
