Identity Theft Protection

Identity Theft Protection  

Overview

In 2017, more than 150 million Americans had their personal data compromised or stolen.1 That means there’s almost a 50 percent chance that you or one of your family members were one of those people.

 

Resolving issues of fraud or identity theft can take weeks, or even months. But thanks to your employer, you have access to PrivacyArmor®, the industry-leading identity protection service that alerts you at the first sign of fraud. Get alerts for credit inquiries, accounts opened in your name, compromised credentials, financial transactions, and more. Enrolling your family extends that protection to anyone in your household.

 

In the event of fraud, you won’t have to figure out what to do—a dedicated team will fully manage and restore your identity.

  • Who is eligible?

    You and your family members are eligible.

  • When can I enroll?

    Enroll now to protect you and your family from the hours of painstaking phone calls, mailed reports, fees, and the heartache of identity theft. Once you enroll, you can log in to your online portal to activate credit monitoring and view identity alerts, verify your account information, and add protection for your family. You can also check your credit score, connect social accounts for monitoring, and more.

  • What if my employment status changes?

    If you leave or retire from your current employer, you can continue your coverage without interruption, subject to applicable law and the policy’s terms and conditions. Although payroll deduction will no longer be available, you can opt for direct bank account deduction, credit card billing, or home billing. Higher rates may apply.

  • My bank/credit card offers identity protection. Why would I need PrivacyArmor?

    PrivacyArmor invests considerable resources into developing and advancing identity theft technology, and spends hours learning how identity thieves work. This means that PrivacyArmor identity protection service is far broader and more comprehensive than a bank or credit card, which is usually based only on credit. Not only does PrivacyArmor monitor it all, but also fully manages and restores your identity in the case of fraud, which means you do none of the legwork. Finally, a $1 million identity theft insurance policy means you don’t have to cover the costs of recovering your identity.

  • Is it safe to give InfoArmor my information?

    InfoArmor’s comprehensive information security policy applies to all of its employees, consultants, contractors, and vendors:

    • Your information is stored solely in an encrypted data center on non-public networks behind firewalls using network address translation and address control lists
    • Security protocols enable only a limited number of professionals to access data on a need-to-know basis
    • All facilities utilize the latest security measures, as well as state-of-the-art surveillance and alarm systems


    If you have any questions about this identity protection service, you can contact InfoArmor at 1-800-789-2720.
