Countrywide Provides Cyber Help
Everyone has good reason to be concerned about identification security. Hacking occurs on a routine basis, and financial information is compromised. Thieves are more sophisticated, and their use of the information is more than just setting up bogus accounts. Cyber thieves will sell blocks of information to other parties, and it allows for even greater abuse of information. More than a basic group legal plan is needed to protect people from this activity.
The Extent of the Damage
The personal information which can be hacked and stolen is extensive. It includes the following:
- Income and employee ID numbers;
- Social Security number;
- Credit card numbers as well as debit card and bank account numbers;
- Personal information is taken such as address and phone numbers.
It doesn’t have to be hacking on the Internet, by the way. Your debit card number can be stolen by somebody looking over your shoulder when you’re making a transaction. Most times people don’t know they are victims until statements arrive several weeks later. Countrywide Pre-Paid Legal Services has dealt with identity theft and includes programs beyond our standard group legal plan benefits. We provide help with identity theft prevention and credit monitoring assistance.
We have two plan options for identity theft prevention and support. One is the Platinum Identity Theft Protector Plan, and the other is the Premier Identity Theft Protector Plan. Each has unique services to help a person better check on the status of all accounts. A plan member has the opportunity of receiving credit reporting from three major credit bureaus, daily credit monitoring, and access to the credit scores. A plan member can be warned about unusual activity, and customer support is available. The extent of the service provided, which includes identity theft insurance, depends on the plan option selected.
The Client Has Control
Countrywide Pre-Paid Legal Services allows for choice with the group legal plan benefits. We do the same with identity theft prevention and credit monitoring. A client gets to decide which plan will be the one for the organization. It is understood that there are different services provided, and we encourage clients to look carefully at either option. Nevertheless, Countrywide offers the same dedication to quality as we do with all our pre-paid legal services plans. We are aware of how stressful ID theft can be for a victim. If the benefit calls for telephone assistance, the Countrywide staff person is expected to provide world-class service and excellent communication skills.
Quick help is critical, and our administration is deliberately set up to respond immediately to any call for help. No one will be kept waiting unnecessary periods of time. What is great about the Countrywide assistance is that it is comprehensive and seeks to find solutions to what can be a financial disaster for an unsuspecting victim.
Substantial Client Benefit
Anyone who is a victim of identity theft is going to be preoccupied trying to find a solution. A lot of time can be spent in restoring health to credit ratings. It means that precious minutes and hours are diverted from a project. No organization should allow such a dangerous distraction given the current economy and the competition. What Countrywide Pre-Paid Legal Services will provide permits a person to have better control over the situation. All the paperwork needed to restore credit integrity can be handled efficiently. The credit monitoring means immediate information about trouble. Knowing of a theft as soon possible prevents the problem from meta-sizing into a disaster.
We encourage decision-makers to find out more about both plans countrywide Pre-Paid Legal Services offers. The unique services are exactly what is needed to end a severe crisis. Please do feel free to contact us and ask as many questions as you wish. You can also ask about the group legal plan benefit. We would welcome the opportunity to be of service.
