Over 10% of children are currently victims of ID Theft.
Your child could be a victim, and you don't even know it.<br />

RGJ wants from PERS the name of the employee, dates of hiring and retirement, government employer, final salary and retirement benefit. With that information it will be very easy for an Identity Thief to get the additional information on thousands of retirees they need to steal their identities.

If the information is made public ALL retired state employees will be at risk of identity theft. "In 2011, respondent Reno Newspapers, Inc., doing business as the Reno Gazette-Journal (RGJ), submitted a public records request to PERS seeking the following pension information: the names of all individuals who are collecting pensions, the names of their government employers, their salaries, their hire and retirement dates, and the amounts of their pension payments. RGJ's request originated as part of an investigation concerning government expenditures and the public cost of retired government employee pensions." (129 Nev., Advance Opinion 88 IN THE SUPREME COURT OF THE STATE OF NEVADA)
Identity thieves will be able to engineer targeted phishing scams using this information. They will be able to mis-represent themselves as PERS employees and gain the few addition pieces of personal Identifying information needed to steal NV retired employee's identities and money.

The best protection is to file as early as possible. The 1st to file wins. Don't let the ID Thief win.
