Notify Important Financial Companies
If you aren’t a member of an identify theft protection service, notify your bank, your credit card companies, your health insurance provider and/or the Social Security Administration. Let them know you have lost your license and ask what protective services they can offer to you. Someone who has found or stolen your license will be able, potentially, to drain your bank account, open new credit card accounts, take out loans in your name and/or accrue medical and utility bills in your name. This may not be the most likely consequence of a lost license, but wouldn’t you rather be safe than sorry.
