Identity theft is one of the fastest growing crimes in the country, costing millions in fraudulent transactions annually. Criminals can easily assume your name and steal your personal financial information to illegally obtain money, credit cards, loans, or property and then leave you to clean up the mess. Having your identity stolen can be an expensive and stressful situation. Identity theft coverage is offered by most insurance companies as optional coverage. Here is some of the protection you would receive by adding this endorsement to your home, condo, or tenant policy:

  • Lost earnings due to court appearances, meetings with lawyers and creditors.
  • Reasonable and customary legal fees for common legal issues resulting from identity theft.
  • Preparing and notarizing documents, records, and affidavits for credit bureaus, financial institutions, and similar credit grantors and law enforcement agencies.
  • Reapplication expenses for credit or loans or as a result of rejection due to incorrect credit records.
  • Certified or overnight mailing expenses for mail to credit bureaus, financial institutions, and law enforcement agencies.

Adding identity theft coverage to your home policy won’t stop someone from stealing your identity, but it will make it much easier and less expensive to get your affairs back on track if it does happen to you.
