Identity Theft for the Deceased?

A deceased fam­ily mem­bers is always a tough topic.  It is still tough in our own fam­ily.  It’s not often that I post links to arti­cles out­side of our blog, but this arti­cle deserves some atten­tion.  It dis­cusses the steps nec­es­sary after a loved-one is deceased to pro­tect the fam­ily from iden­tity theft.  The dif­fer­ence in this type of iden­tity theft and that of your iden­tity is that you actively pro­tect your id (I hope).  Do you pro­tect deceased fam­ily member’s id’s?

The arti­cle Avoid­ing ID Theft On Dead Fam­ily Mem­bers is an eye open­ing arti­cle.  They also ref­er­ence a non-profit entity to help if iden­tity theft occurs, regard­less of whose iden­tity is stolen.  I am not famil­iar with this group, the Iden­tity Theft Resource Cen­ter, but the infor­ma­tion is abun­dant on their web site.

The mes­sage here is that there is one more item that deserves some atten­tion after los­ing a loved-one.  Be sure to have some­one help you com­plete this task or do it yourself.
