The American Safety Council has teamed with Travelers Casualty and Surety Company to provide the first stand-alone Identity Theft Insurance policy. As more American consumers fall victim to Identity Theft—a reported 1 in every 23 people according to a Better Business Bureau and Javelin Strategy report—the need for Identity Theft Insurance at an affordable price becomes clear.
The Insurance policies can be purchased online at www.IdentityTheftPolicy.com and offer Identity Theft protection for you and your entire family (including your spouse and all children living at home). There is no out-of-pocket deductible and coverage includes money stolen from you or your family up to $30,000, lost wages from time off work up to $500 per week for up to 4 weeks, pre-approved attorney fees and more.
“The policies we offer don’t just cover the money you lost,” says Bob Proechel, President of the American Safety Council. “They also help you recover the costs of Identity Fraud, including lawyer fees and lost wages. And because we’re able to offer this unique Insurance as a stand-alone policy, we can make it affordable for all consumers. You can protect your family for just pennies a day.”
With no out-of-pocket deductible to pay, you can avoid any loss of finances. Plus, Travelers' toll-free identity theft help line will connect you to professionals ready to help you recover your identity.
