Allied can help if your identity is stolen
Identity theft is one of the fastest-growing crimes in the United States, and undoing the damage of a privacy loss can take more time and money that most people realize. If you're a victim, Allied Identity Theft Protection can help you recover.
Identity theft occurs when your personal data (such as your social security number or credit card) is used without your permission to commit fraud. Criminals use your information to make expensive purchases, open new accounts — even rent apartments.
It's estimated that ID theft victims pay nearly $95 the first month alone for professionals to resolve the damage — about double the annual cost of Allied's Identity Theft Protection insurance. Victims of medical ID theft have it even worse; it can cost thousands for medical professionals to review and resolve medical records and other traces of the crime.
Personal identity threats
Your identity can be stolen and abused in a variety of ways, such as:
- Wallet and purse snatching
- Mailbox raiding to obtain bank and credit card statements
- Trash and dumpster diving
- Online skimming and phishing of your personal data
- Email scams by crooks posing as legitimate companies
- Corporate data breaches
- Credit reports obtained by thieves pretending to be an employer

Allied Identity Theft Protection can cover certain expenses needed to restore your identity, and includes a no cost credit monitoring that keeps track of inquires and changes made to your credit report. (One person per policy; other family members can enroll for a nominal fee).
