I'm a victim of ID Fraud and I was told besides going through Equifax and Trans Union I can get my SIN changed.

How do I go about doing this and how much does it cost.

Hello,

Thank you for sharing your situation and question with us. We are sorry to hear that this has happened.

We can appreciate that you would be very concerned about this situation and be interested in finding out what your options are in this situation.

According to the Service Canada website,

A new SIN may be issued only in situations where there is a proof that the SIN was used fraudulently.


We suggest that you contact Service Canada directly to find out what the steps are that you can take to get a new SIN.


I hope this information is helpful. Please let us know if you have further questions and if there is any follow up to your question/situation.

Hello,
Recently I got my Social Insurance Number (SIN). I later found that in the address, there is a mistake in the pincode of my address. Do I have to correct my Pincode in the SIN confirmation letter again or it does not matter? Please let me know. Thank you.
