PII: State Proof of Identity Cards South Australia
Replacing your SA Proof of Age Card, with or without a change of client number, may not reduce the risk of your previous card or number 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 Age 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.
A replacement Proof of Age card will have the same client number as your previous card, however the manufacture audit number on the back of the card will be different. Please note that your Proof of Age client number is the same as your current or future driver licence number.
Service SA has advised IDCARE that if you are concerned that your client number is being used fraudulently, you may request a change of client number. If your request is successful, this will change your client number for your proof of age card and any other South Australian licences you have been issued. Please check with Service SA whether you will be required to pay a replacement fee for any licences you hold where the client number will also change.
To request a change of client number:
Provide evidence of fraudulent activity, including a Police Report from any state or territory. You may wish to provide additional evidence to support your application, such as: A ReportCyber Receipt (CIRS) number Written confirmation of fraudulent activity on the company letterhead of a service provider A South Australian Statutory Declaration signed by a Justice of the Peace Attach a letter outlining what has happened, and send with as much of the above documentation that you have gathered to email@example.com or by post to:
