Watching the Credit Scores

These are days when a person has to be very careful about identification theft. It can be very easy for hackers and thieves to steal credit card information. The best way to stay secure is to have a group legal plan benefit that allows for daily credit monitoring.

When an identity theft has occurred, the felon moves quickly. He or she will use the credit card to buy a lot of merchandise. You as a consumer might not know about this until you receive your monthly statement. You then have to go through the nightmare of trying to get back your credit integrity. The Platinum ID Protector Plan that Countrywide Pre-Paid Legal Services offers is the best early warning system.


Daily credit monitoring is part of the services benefit and the three major credit bureaus (Experian™, Equifax™, and TransUnion™) submit email alerts. This happened whenever a sudden jump in your credit card activity happens. You are able to know almost immediately of a credit card fraud. Many people are justifiably nervous when they get hit by this kind of crime. The Platinum ID Protector Plan provides for customer service support which is free of charge. As with any Countrywide group legal services benefit, a great deal of courtesy is shown to anyone who calls in. Answers to questions and instructions on how to file credit disputes are all part of the service.

Trying to recover credit integrity sometimes requires services beyond what an ordinary group legal plan provides. There are expenses such as affidavits, paper filings, and applications that need to be completed. A person may also have to take time off from work. The plan provides $25,000 of identity theft insurance to help with the costs. In addition, the Platinum ID Protector Plan will allow for as much as $500 per week for lost wages up to four weeks within the first twelve months of the theft discovery (contingent on the claim being approved).

The entire package of credit monitoring will take a major load off the shoulders of any credit theft victim. Countrywide knows full well the need to move quickly on these type of problems. Our administration is prepared to move as fast as possible, just as it is with our group legal services benefits. We streamline procedures so that the plan members are given service without any hassles. That is, of course, in addition to great customer service.

Countrywide Pre-Paid Legal Services has designed group legal plan benefits since 1987 for all types of organizations. We believe that the Platinum Identity Theft Protection Plan is a great additional benefit to any group legal services plan a company may have. Identity theft is a growth industry and the media is full of stories about credit cards being compromised. An employee who has had credit information stolen is more than distracted. The stress is such that work projects often suffer. No one wants to see a good employee in a state of great anxiety. The protection benefit an employer can provide is sincerely appreciated by every member of the work force.

Flexibility is one of the benefits Countrywide provides for the employer. We work with the client to provide exactly what is needed. If the Platinum Identity Theft Protector Plan is not what a prospective client wants, we also have the Premier Identity Theft Protector Plan. This, too, provides great credit monitoring protection for an individual. Your employees are important to the success of the business and need to stay focused. The credit monitoring protection offered by Countrywide, just like our group legal plan benefits, offer the kind of protection which is so necessary in this day and age. All of our group legal services plan protection helps people feel more secure and sleep soundly. ID integrity is better protected.
