Credit freeze

By Terry Savage on February 02, 2023 | Credit/Debt

I am 79 years old. More than once, I have been notified by a medical provider that their data base had been hacked and that my personal info might be “out there”. Is it wise for me to freeze my credit. I doubt that I will be applying for any new credit in this lifetime.
Thank you,
