Tuesday, May 24, 2022 (2:00 PM - 3:00 PM) (CDT)


Mid Minnesota Federal Credit Union is hosting free Community Shred Days at our Baxter Office on May 25 from 2-3pm and Brainerd Office on June 10 from 11am-Noon.Shredding documents that have your personal information is a great way to protect yourself from identity theft by keeping the wrong person from finding your social security number, financial account numbers, credit card numbers and any other valuable identifying data.

Mid Minnesota also recommends these additional ways to protect your identity:

  • Set-up a “junk” email address for mailings or ordering products online to reduce the odds of your friends getting spam or malicious emails should your email get breeched.
  • Monitor your bank statements and credit card statements regularly.
  • Review your credit report (at a minimum) once a year at:
  • Shred all financial information such as: bank statements, credit card receipts, pre-approved credit applications, etc.
  • Have payments directly deposited into your account (ie. Social Security)
  • Empty your wallet of extras. Remove your social security card and credit cards you do not use often. Carry your birth certificate and passport only when necessary.
  • Keep an emergency list of all your financial account numbers and credit card accounts in a safe location, such as a safe deposit box at MMFCU.
  • Strengthen your passwords: minimum of 8 characters; use numbers, lowercase letters, uppercase letters and special characters, pick themes and phrases; don’t use names or phrases about yourself; and use different passwords for everything.

If you suspect that you are victim of identity theft or any type of fraud contact Mid Minnesota Federal Credit Union and the local authorities right away. We are here to help.
