When we live so much of our lives online, our personal information is continually at risk. Information travels through cyberspace and it can be stolen and used for fraudulent purchases, credit card or bank account applications, tax filings and a host of many other things that can easily damage your credit or cause financial headaches for you and your family—that can be hard to recover from as well.
The statistics regarding identity theft are alarming:*
Identity protection services monitor information and in some cases can stop a theft attempt that is in the works.
Your identity is your life. Protect yours for as little as 7 cents a day. Liberty Mutual realizes that it’s not just your finances that are in jeopardy. With the Liberty Mutual Fraud Expense Coverage, which can be added to your home, condo, or renters policy, Liberty Mutual will reimburse expenses and provide a counselor to help you recover the identity you’ve worked a lifetime to build. They also provide a year of credit monitoring to help ensure it doesn’t happen again.
Of all your assets, your identity is probably the most important—and the most vulnerable. Your identity is needed to help you secure credit, apply for mortgages, and open bank accounts. It can also affect the rates you pay for loans and interest rates you’re offered for credit cards. If your identity is compromised, the impact can be severe.
