A friend of ours recently bought “credit insurance” which I guess protects you/helps you in the event of identity theft. They told us that we needed to get it. However, it’s just not in the budget for us, but it did make me think that I needed to at least do the thing that was FREE, namely, checking our credit every year.
I just finished doing it, and everything looks good, nothing fishy, and it only took about 30 minutes to do both of our credit reports (from three different agencies for both of us) The website I used that was very EASY and FREE was www.annualcreditreport.com You can also check it online or order it by phone or mail on that website.
