PII: State Proof of Identity Cards ACT
ACT Proof of Identity Card
Replacing your ACT Proof of Identity Card may not reduce the risk of your previous card being misused as a form of identity. IDCARE advises that you continue to monitor for misuse by following the “Detect” measures provided at the beginning of this email. Also, request additional security for your existing accounts that may use your Proof of Identity Card as part of verifying your identity. This could include, but is not limited to, banking and finance accounts, superannuation, Commonwealth Government services (such as myGov), telecommunications and utilities providers, and social media accounts.
Unlike most Australian states, Proof of Identity card customer reference numbers cannot be changed in the ACT, and will be the same as your current or future ACT driver licence number.
