Identity Theft Insurance

400,000 victims a year and a small premium to pay for coverage, but is it still good value for your insurance dollar?

It’s that sinking feeling that no insurance policy can truly prepare you for: you have just been the victim of identity theft. Someone has stolen your driver’s license, Social Security number and most catastrophically, your credit card.

Instead, what the policy does cover is the expenses you incur setting your financial house back in order. These expenses can include:
