Identity Theft Protection: Are You Secure?

Millions of Americans deal with stolen identities each year. You can be ready.

Why Identity Theft Protection Is a Must

Identity theft is on the rise.

Identity theft has become more and more common each year. In 2014, 17.6 million Americans became victims of identity theft.(1) In 2017, hackers stole the personal information of nearly 148 million Americans in a single breach.(2)

It’s not a matter of if. It’s a matter of when.

Even if you're careful about protecting your personal information, databases are under constant attack. Hackers can steal your date of birth, address, debit card number, email address, and more.

Thieves can steal more than just your money.

There are many types of identity theft—financial, criminal, Social Security, medical, IRS—and the list keeps growing. Cleaning up the mess could take you hundreds of hours of work.

  10. Choice of Law – Any dispute arising under the policy, or with respect to the application of or interpretation of this policy, shall be governed by the laws of the state of Texas.
  11. Appraisal – In the case the Subscriber and we shall fail to agree as to the actual cash value or the amount of Loss, then, on the written demand of either, each shall select a competent and disinterested appraiser and notify the other of the appraiser selected within twenty days of such demand. The appraisers shall first select a competent and disinterested umpire; and failing for fifteen (15) days to agree upon such umpire, then on request the Subscriber or us, such umpire shall be selected by a judge of a court of record in the state in which the property covered is located. The appraisers shall then appraise the Loss, stating separately actual cash value and Loss to each item; and failing to agree, such submit their differences, only, to the umpire. An award in writing, so itemized, of any two when filed with us shall determine the amount of actual cash value and Loss. Each appraiser shall be paid by the party selecting him and the expenses of appraisal and umpire shall be paid by the parties equally.
  12. Currency – All premiums, limits, retentions, Loss and other amounts under this policy are expressed and payable in the currency of the United States of America. If Losses are stated or incurred in a currency other than United States of America dollars, payment of covered Loss due under this policy will be made either in such other currency or, in United States of America dollars, at the rate of exchange published in The Wall Street Journal on the date the Insurer’s obligation to pay such Loss is established (or if not published on such date the next publication date of The Wall Street Journal).
