§ 151. Written request for security freeze--Processing time--Confirmation of freeze and identification number--Disclosures
A. A consumer may request that a security freeze be placed on his or her consumer report by sending a request in writing by certified mail to a consumer reporting agency at an address designated by the consumer reporting agency to receive such requests. This subsection does not prevent a consumer reporting agency from advising a third party that a security freeze is in effect with respect to the consumer report of a consumer.
B. A consumer reporting agency shall place a security freeze on a consumer report of a consumer no later than five (5) business days after receiving from the consumer:
1. A written request as provided in subsection A of this section;
2. Proper identification; and
3. Payment of the required fee, if applicable.
Provided, however, with respect to any security freeze requested before May 1, 2007, the deadline stated in this subsection shall be ten (10) business days if a consumer reporting agency in good faith is unable to process during normal business hours the quantity of security freeze requests being received.
C. The consumer reporting agency shall send a written confirmation of the placement of the security freeze to the consumer within ten (10) business days. Upon placing the security freeze on the consumer report of the consumer, the consumer reporting agency shall provide the consumer with a unique personal identification number or password to be used by the consumer when providing authorization for the release of his or her consumer report for a specific period of time.
D. If a consumer requests a security freeze, the consumer reporting agency shall disclose the process of placing and temporarily lifting a freeze, and the process for allowing access to information from the consumer report of the consumer for a period of time while the freeze is in place.
