Military Service Members Can Obtain Free Credit Monitoring Starting on October 31, 2019

Starting October 31, many members of the military will have access to free electronic credit monitoring, which can help them spot identity theft.

In response to a new FTC Rule implementing a 2018 law, the nationwide credit reporting agencies—Equifax, Experian, and TransUnion—are providing free electronic credit monitoring services to active duty service members and National Guard members. Credit monitoring services can alert consumers to mistakes or problems with their credit reports that might stem from the unauthorized use of their personal information to obtain credit.
