IdentityForce Announces Free ChildWatch Service for Employers
Leader of Identity Theft Protection Services Protects What Matters Most for Employees to Safeguard Against Fraud and Scams
November 15th, 2016
In an unprecedented move, IdentityForce, Inc. today announced that effective immediately, organizations who offer their employees either the IdentityForce UltraSecure or the UltraSecure+Credit products, will be able to also have their employees sign up to receive full coverage for an unlimited number of children* living in the same household for no additional charge. IdentityForce’s ChildWatch service includes thorough and ongoing identity monitoring, fraud monitoring, access to an identity restoration specialist, and one million dollars in identity theft insurance. The company has a trusted history with families and is the only identity protection service to be awarded the Parent Tested Parent Approved Seal.
“Children are often the invisible victims of identity theft as their social security numbers are considered pristine, and in the hands of skillful thieves, there’s a tremendous amount of financial devastation that can occur. There’s also a lot of runway before adulthood, which means this theft can go unnoticed for years,” said Steven Bearak, CEO of IdentityForce. “We’re committed to protecting what matters most and we believe that by providing unlimited ChildWatch protection, we’ll help deliver peace of mind to the families of the employers we serve.”
An increasing number of organizations across the U.S. are becoming more aware of the impact identity theft can have on their employees. Analysts have reported that the biggest shift in benefit adoption will be seen specifically around identity theft protection – a benefit offered by 35% of employers in 2015, but is expected to skyrocket to 70% by 2018. Employee Benefit News provides further perspective on this trend in its newly released whitepaper, “5 Reasons Identity Protection is the Hot Voluntary Benefit for 2017.”
“With a myriad of consequences ranging from lost work time and earnings, out-of-pocket expenses, and general disruption to workforce and business productivity, organizations realize the need to ensure their employees are protected,” continued Bearak. “We’re proud of the reputation we’ve built over the last forty years, and are excited to put ChildWatch in the hands of parents across the country who really do need one less worry.”
* CHILDREN are defined as dependents 25-years-old and under. Children will receive a tailored identity protection product – ChildWatch – only available with an UltraSecure or the UltraSecure+Credit membership. IdentityForce identity protection enrollment is limited to employees and their eligible dependents. Offer only available through employer-based benefits program.
* IMPORTANT NOTE: To be sure members receive all the identity protection services that they are entitled to from IdentityForce, they must fully complete the information requested in their personal dashboard. Please be aware, if they do not provide IdentityForce with additional information about themselves or their dependents, we can only help protect the information that has been provided. If they do not utilize all the identity protection services they are entitled to receive, they will not be eligible for a refund for any services that go unused. In addition, no one can guarantee that they can prevent all identity theft and they may still become a victim of identity theft even if they use our services.
