Notice for Victims of Human Trafficking 

The latest amendment to the FCRA has introduced provisions to block adverse information linked to human trafficking survivors. This amendment, brought forth by the National Defense Authorization Act for Fiscal Year 2022 (2022 NDAA), aims to support survivors by enabling Consumer Reporting Agencies (CRAs) to block such adverse information. As a survivor of human trafficking, you now have the right to request the blocking of adverse information that resulted from severe forms of trafficking or sex trafficking. The goal of this legislation aims to provide equal access to job opportunities, housing, and other essential services. 

Steps to Request a Block of Information in Your Report 

Provide Your Proof of Identity 

Proof of identity can be established in one of two ways as follows:

• Consumer File Match – Provide your full name (first, middle, last, suffix), any previously used names, full social security number and/or date of birth. 
• Additional Proof of Identity – Copies of government issued identification documents, utility bills, and/or other methods of your identity, which may include answering questions to which you may be expected to know the answer. 

Provide Your Trafficking Documentation 

 You are required to provide an acceptable Victim Determination Statement, which is a document that contains a determination of human trafficking, made by either: 

• A Federal, State, or Tribal governmental entity. 
• A non-governmental member of a human trafficking task force, including victim service providers affiliated with these entities and authorized by a Federal, State or Tribal government entity, OR 
• A self-attestation by a consumer who identifies as a victim of human trafficking that is signed or certified by a Federal, State or Tribal government entity, court of competent jurisdiction, or an authorized representative of these entities.  

Identify Items of Potential Adverse Action 

 Provide the specific items of information in your consumer report that you believe should not be furnished by a consumer reporting agency because the items are a result of human trafficking.
