Community Connections: Diverse Power Offers Identity Theft Protection
News From Diverse Power
Do you have a credit, ATM or debit card? Have you recently purchased items online or in person? Do you use digital communications?
If you answered “yes” to any or all of the above questions, you are at risk for identity theft. Diverse Power is proud to bring you ID Sanctuary, a cost effective identity theft monitoring and resolution service, as part of the Touchstone Energy Co-op Connections Card.
For $5 a month for individual coverage or $8 for a family, ID Sanctuary offers fraud and credit monitoring that scours billions of records and sources. If something changes, subscribers receive an alert.
And if your identity is stolen, the service also provides help in resolving the issue.
“We’re excited to offer this service to help safeguard our members at a price that families can afford,” says Marketing Coordinator Ken Pope.
Joel Ray, CEO of Dallas-based New Benefits, which runs ID Sanctuary, calls identity theft the nation’s “fastest growing crime.”
“Consumers need to be more diligent in how they protect themselves,” says Ray. “It is critical for consumers to safeguard their private information.”
ID Sanctuary provides subscribers with proactive tools and recovery assistance needed to quickly respond to an identity or fraud crisis. Benefits include:
- Proactive assistance whenever you suspect your identity has been compromised,
- Step-by-step guidance through the identity resolution process if you are a victim of identity theft or fraud,
- Document replacement help when identity documents such as Social Security cards, birth certificates, passports and driver’s licenses are lost, stolen or destroyed,
- Fraud and credit monitoring services that detect potential fraud, and
- Online educational resources providing tips and steps to take to avoid becoming a victim of identity theft.
New Benefits is no stranger to Co-op Connections. The company earlier partnered with Touchstone Energy on the card’s legendary prescription drug benefit, which to date has saved co-op members some $90 million.
“We’re doing everything we can to look out for our members and go the extra mile to live the cooperative difference,” says Pope.
The Co-op Connections Card offers Diverse Power members savings on everything from hotel rooms to dental care. Check out the deals, both locally and nationally, at www.connections.coop.
“We’re eager to answer any questions you have about the card and how to take advantage of the discounts it provides,” says Pope.
