Look for this icon on any web page that asks for or displays your personal information. The presence of the lock icon ensures that all information you send to us will be encrypted.

WHEDA will never request that you submit sensitive information to us from your personal e-mail account. If you receive an e-mail message requesting this type of information, you should be suspicious of the authenticity of the request. Please do not share any personal information, user identification, passwords, account numbers or PIN numbers in response to these types of requests.
