First step is to put a freeze on your social security number with EACH of the credit bureaus.   This will stop the proces of new credit accounts.  Get a copy of your credit report that shows your accounts.  Any account which is not yours, you should contact the creditor and report it as being fraudlegent.  You will also need to file an identity theft report with your local police department.   They can help in the investigation.   Even for your own credit accounts, check with the creditor, usually on their website, to ensure you do not have any "authorized users" on an account of which you did not authorize.  Have them removed immediately and provide this information to the police as part of your report.   Check the addresses that are reflected on all accounts and reference the address with who you knew would be there.     In reference to possible goverment benefits, you would need to know which government offices are providing the benefits.

My question would be: what makes you think this? I would suspect that you might be jumping to conclusions based on confusion. Please explain why you feel this way and we can go from there.
