Essential Service #2 – Identity Theft Protection

The second essential service everyone needs these days is Identity Theft protection.  Your identity is yours and yours alone.  Everyone deserves the right to have their identity protected. Did you know that identity theft is one of the most prolific crimes in the United States and the world?   During the last few years two major retailers that we shop at, Target, Home Depot, and our medical insurance providers were hacked.

Many people ignore this issue, hope it doesn’t affect them or think that if they shred all documents with personal information they are protected.  At best some people have a credit bureau monitoring service.

While a monitoring service sounds like it is enough, what happens if you become a victim of identity theft?  You will also need professional advice and most importantly, comprehensive restoration.

There many types of identity theft, not just financial.  Some of the most common are social security, drivers license, criminal, income tax, and, in my mind scariest of all, medical identity theft.

Even children’s identities are being stolen.  The trouble is they probably won’t find out about it until they apply for college, go to get credit, apply for a security clearance, buy auto insurance, or some other life event.

LegalShield also offers one of the industry’s most affordable and powerful identity theft plans.

Members have access to licensed investigators skilled in identity theft monitoring and restoration. And our identity theft plan protects the entire family for the cost other plans charge to cover a single individual.

My wife and have had this service since 2009.  It gives us great peace of mind.

I have a friend whose identity was stolen years ago.  He has tried to fix the issues himself.  Unfortunately he still occasionally has issues related to this theft which eats up his time and energy.  That’s why it is so important to have a service that provides comprehensive identity restoration services as part of your plan.

I will leave you with this one thought.  Mary Jane and I have the LegalShield family plan, identity theft plan, and a small business plan.  It is the best investment in our future that we make every month.

In the spirit of full disclosure, we are independent associates for LegalShield because we believe in it so much.  It really doesn’t change the fact that these are must-have services for individuals, families, and small businesses.  If you’d like to enroll or learn more, click here to go to our website.
