What would you do if yours was lost or stolen?  According to the FBI, “a wallet or purse is the most concentrated place that your personal identification is stored and therefore is the most vulnerable asset that you have.” Read more.  

Don't panic, it’s easier to deal with when you're prepared for any disaster. 

What's in your wallet?

Cash, checks, driver's license, debit/credit cards, insurance and membership cards and more. Photocopy/scan front and back of all cards. Seniors, protect your identity on Medicare cards.

What's in your purse or briefcase? 

Checkbook, keys, glasses, cell, iPod, laptop, flash drives.  Anything else?

Do Now

  • In a secure location, keep copies of cards and papers you carry with you, plus an up-to-date inventory and photos of all valued possessions. 
  • Keep a current list of credit cards, contact info, account numbers, pin numbers.
  • Do NOT carry social security card or number. Protect your identity!
  • Label keys and tech tools with business phone number and address not home address.
  • Back-up all data often. Replacing valuable information is overwhelming!

If Loss Or Theft Happens

Report to Lost and Found, Police, DMV, bank, insurance companies, credit reporting agencies, credit card companies and any other agencies.

Police Department websites can help.  

Declutter your wallet, purse and briefcase often. Have you ever lost these possessions?
