Identity theft assistance

Nov 23, 2015

Identity theft is the number one consumer complaint for 14 years in a row, according to the 2014 Federal Trade Commission study

How you may be at risk

Identity theft is the fastest-growing crime in America, with a new victim every two seconds, says the TransUnion credit reporting bureau. Could any of these happen to you?

  • Retailer data breaches
  • Employment ID theft         
  • Social media and phishing scams

How Nationwide Private Client responds

Identify theft expense coverage is a policy benefit in the Nationwide Private Client homeowners policy with a limit of $25,000 and options to increase up to $100,000. Our trusted partner, Europ Assistance USA, will act as your personal advocate if your identity is ever compromised. Should identity theft or fraud occur, a team of experts will be right by your side. 

After an identity theft event, our coverage helps reimburse expenses related to restoring your identity and can also help with the following:  

  • Lost income from time taken off work while working to re-establish identity
  • Reasonable attorney fees incurred due to identity theft as a result of lawsuits against you, removal of wrongful judgments, or to challenge the completeness or accuracy of information in your credit reports
  • Reporting the identity theft to the Federal Trade Commission and local authorities
  • Providing ongoing monitoring and alerts of fraud activity
