Hi, my name is***** have been practicing SS LAW full time for 10+ years and look forward to assisting you.

Expert:  Stephanie O Joy, Esq replied 4 months ago.

The SSA typically will not change anything, although the OIG does recommend reporting it by calling(###) ###-#### That said, you will want to file a police report, noting that these were among the stolen items. You will also want to file fraud alerts with each of the 3 major credit bureaus which requires the police report and an affidavit, typically. The credit bureaus will provide you with the forms/check list for what they need. That done, when / if someone tries to get credit / loan under your SS#, the lender will have to take extra measures to ensure it is you or not you.
