IDENTITY THEFT PROTECTION

Your credit card company may cover fraudulent purchases made with your card, but nearly 70% of identity theft results from non-credit card related fraud. Some of these thefts include data breaches, stolen Social Security Numbers, tax fraud, and hackers taking over bank accounts.
You will enroll according to the guidelines set by your company. There is no additional paperwork required. You will create an online profile based on instructions sent to you by Legal Resources. However, if an incident occurs, identity restoration specialists may need you to fill out some paperwork depending on the matter.
The Legal Resources Identity Protection Plan continuously monitors thousands of websites, chat rooms, blogs, and public records for potential threats to your identity. You will immediately receive an alert of suspicious activity through our rapid alert system via email. If you become a victim of identity theft, you will speak with certified protection experts who know exactly what to do to quickly help you recover from identity theft.
Plans are available as individual, couple, and family plans. However, plan availability is based on employer-specific policies. Check with your HR department to verify what your employer offers.
