IDShield Identity Theft Protection Program
Identity theft can happen to anyone. And while it takes just minutes to happen, recovering from the financial damage and emotional stress it causes can take years.
To help protect you and your family, the University offers IDShield, an identity theft protection product. IDShield has provided identity theft coverage since 2003, longer than anyone else in the market.

IDShield provides security monitoring of your credit cards, bank accounts, Social Security number, financial activity alerts, and quarterly credit score tracking.
In case your identity is stolen, you will have complete identity recovery service by Kroll licensed private Investigators who will work to restore your identity to its pre-theft status.
