Years ago the fear of identity theft was nonexistent. In fact, you never really knew anyone who had suffered from identity theft and needed pre-paid legal services to help them get through it. Unfortunately everyone now knows someone who has suffered from this crime and you may have been a victim yourself. Identity theft is no laughing matter and even though it is usually a non-violent crime, it can leave you feeling unsafe. No one points a gun at you when they steal your identity but the thought of having someone out there with your personal information is a bit startling. It doesn’t matter where you live, an administrative assistant in Allentown could fall victim to this crime as well as someone who lives in Washington. This is a serious crime and it can have devastating effects on your financial life.
There is more to this crime than someone taking money out of your bank account, in fact that rarely happens. The usual crime is someone opening up a credit card account in your name and using it as they please. Normally, you do not find out about this until you have your credit score checked and by then the damage is done. Even though you are a victim, you need to take certain legal actions to make sure you fully recover from this and you probably will have some questions about what to do. From an employer or human resources department standpoint, this sort of thing can really cause problems for a worker and there really is little you can do to help. One thing you can do is make sure that your employees have access to attorneys who can help with these types of matters immediately. Prepaid legal services will assist any employee with their legal issues including identity theft. The employee will save time looking for an attorney and they will save money because the cost is covered by a small and simple payroll deduction much like other voluntary benefits.
The advantages of having prepaid legal services at your disposal are vast, especially for anyone who has a heavy work load. There’s no such thing as a fast food attorney, you have to look for one, and then consult with them and that takes time, not to mention money. However, with Countrywide Pre-Paid Legal Services there would be no concern over cost or time wasted trying to find the right attorney. With these legal service plans you are tapped into a network of qualified attorneys who cover every legal field imaginable, including identity theft.
