Protecting your FSA ID username and password is extremely important. The FSA ID allows you to electronically sign documents, view your personal information, and apply for loans. If your FSA ID ends up comprised then an unscrupulous individual could not only access your personal information, but could apply for student loans.

These tips will help you keep your FSA ID secure:

1.       Never share your FSA ID with anyone, including a family member.

2.       Create a strong FSA ID password, and change it immediately if you suspect that your password has been compromised.

3.       Don’t use personal information, such as your name, as part of your FSA ID.

4.       Contact Federal Student Aid immediately if your FSA ID has been compromised.
