Jewelers Mutual to Offer Free ID Theft Service
Jewelers Mutual Insurance will offer a free identity theft service for commercial policyholders in the United States and Canada who are owners,
officers or principals of their jewelry businesses, the company announced this week.
Available through a partnership with Identity Theft 911, a leading
provider of identity theft resolution and education, Identity Theft
Restoration Services will help policyholders restore their identity and
credit in the event they become victims of identity theft. The service also
will help rebuild their original means of identification if they are
impacted by a natural disaster, regardless of whether or not an identity
theft occurred. Policyholders may also extend the service to their immediate family members.
"Without professional assistance, identity theft victims can spend more than
20 work days trying to recover from this crime," says Jeff Mills, vice
president of commercial lines operations for Jewelers Mutual. "By using our Identity Theft Restoration Services, customers can spend less than two hours."
If policyholders become victims of identity theft, they can call Jewelers
Mutual's Claim Department and will be connected to a representative
from Identity Theft 911. The service helps them with credit restoration, including notification to credit bureaus and creditors, preparation of documentation and filing police reports, and more.
