Social Security Number on Parking Mailer

Early in July, a brochure was sent out to University of Maryland Students with parking information. Unfortunately, printed on these mailers were students' social security numbers.

The Department of Transportation Services, in conjunction with Student Affairs, will be providing free Equifax services for students who register by September 10th. To find out more about this service, go to www.transportation.umd.edu/parkingmailer

Also, you can place a fraud alert on your credit by going to www.ftc.gov/idtheft

If you still have your mailer, black out the number or shred the document before throwing it away. At this point, this is unfortunately the only option we have to correct this error.

Any other questions can be directed to the University at 1-877-935-2428
