Foster care; security freeze on credit report. Requires local departments of social services to request the placement of a security freeze on the credit report or record of any child who has been in foster care for at least six months in order to prevent cases of identity theft and misuse of personal identifying information. The bill directs local departments to request the removal of such security freezes upon the child's removal from foster care. The bill allows local departments, with the child's consent, to request the removal of a security freeze placed on the credit report or record of a child who continues to receive foster care or independent living services beyond his eighteenth birthday; however, in such instances, the local department is required to conduct annual credit checks on the child. Amends § 63.2-905.2, of the Code of Virginia. Read the Bill »
