Identity Theft Recovery Plan

If someone is using your personal or financial information to make purchases, get benefits, file taxes, or commit fraud, that's identity theft.  

The Identity Theft Recovery Plan booklet published by the Federal Trade Commission provides detailed advice to help fix problems caused by identity theft. View the booklet (PDF) in its entirety.

  1. Get a personal recovery plan that walks you through each step
  2. Update your plan and track your progress
  3. View letters and forms to send to credit bureaus, businesses, and debt collectors
