The credit reporting site Equifax was recently hacked, affecting around 143 million people in the US. There is a good chance that YOUR information (social security number, credit card numbers, address, birthdate, etc.) is vulnerable.
Equifax has set up a page to enroll in FREE identity theft protection and credit file monitoring (for 1 year). Simply follow the link below sign up; it only takes about 30 seconds to sign up and they will tell you if they think your information may have gotten out.
(NOTE: Once you initially sign up you MUST return to the site on the date they tell you to complete the registration process. Set a caledar reminder to remind you when to return!)
