Safeguard for Minors Children under the age of 18 have a much higher risk of identity theft than is commonly realized. Thieves target them because the child’s information may be used for years without discovery … until the minor is old enough to establish credit. Education, early detection, and expert consultation make for a powerful package of tools to minimize this risk. Up to four minor children can be enrolled for monitoring to detect existing credit files and it will cost the member only $1 more per month per family. All dependent children up to 18 are covered for consultation and restoration.
