  • Require the Social Security Administration to create a new database containing people’s names, dates of birth, and social security numbers, for use in responding to identity-verification requests as one step to combat “synthetic identity fraud;”

  • Require the Department of Veterans Affairs to establish a database (within one year) to allow consumer reporting agencies to verify veterans’ medical debts;
  • Amend the Fair Credit Reporting Act rules regarding security freezes;
  • Provides immunity from liability for disclosing the suspected exploitation of a senior citizen to a covered agency to financial institutions, and to certain employees;
