TD Insurance Helps Customers Stay A Step Ahead Of Identity Theft

TD Insurance Inc., one of the 10 largest bank-owned insurance agency and brokerage firms in the U.S., and TD Bank, America’s Most Convenient Bank, are making it easier for consumers to monitor their accounts and protect themselves from identity theft with ITAC Sentinel Plus.
 
Features of the program include:
    •    Credit monitoring and alert notifications from Equifax, Experian & TransUnion credit bureaus
    •    Daily Internet surveillance of credit and debit card accounts and activity with customers’ Social Security number
    •    Guidance to help replace or place a hold on lost or stolen cards
    •    Quarterly credit updates
    •    Access to online credit education tools
    •    Unlimited access to Service Education Specialists
    •    ITAC Victim Assistance
    •    $20,000 identity theft insurance (with $0 deductible)
 
ITAC Sentinel Plus, available for $12.99 a month, is ideal for people with multiple financial accounts, those looking to make a major purchase, or anyone who wants all-inclusive fraud protection. It takes the guesswork out of preventing identity theft and fraud by monitoring customers’ credit on a daily basis and providing email alerts when certain activity is detected. Consumers can visit www.tdbank.com/protect or call 866-309-4424 to enroll in the program.
 
Last year, 8.1 million adults – or one out of 10 U.S. consumers – fell victim to identity fraud, according to a recent Javelin Strategy & Research Identity Fraud Survey. TD Insurance and TD Bank are offering ITAC Sentinel Plus as an easy and convenient way for customers to prevent the hassles and headache of identity theft. ITAC Sentinel Plus is provided by ITAC, the Identity Theft Assistance Center, a non-profit coalition of financial services companies united in their commitment to protect consumers from identity theft.
 
“Identity theft can happen to anyone at anytime. The longer it goes undetected, the more money you stand to lose, and the more time it takes to fix,” said Marco Fortier, Senior Vice President, Personal Lines, TD Insurance. “ITAC Sentinel Plus can help you expose a potential theft or fraud sooner and save you the headache of losing money, or having to close and re-open accounts.”
 
With the rise of identity theft, Americans are increasingly at risk for damaged credit and financial loss. The most common examples of fraud include:
    •    Credit card
    •    Phone or utility
    •    Employment-related
    •    Government document
    •    Benefit
 
ITAC Sentinel is offered in partnership with Intersections Inc., a leading provider of consumer and corporate identity risk management services.
