Identity Theft

Level I: Professional Recovery Services if You Become a Victim of Identity Theft

IDSafeChoice Identity Theft Recovery Group Program – Benefits

Think you don’t need identity theft protection?  Think again.

Identity theft is consistently the number one complaint to the Federal Trade Commission.  Rampant data breaches, affecting millions of records, are putting consumers at great risk of identity theft.  It can happen to anyone – regardless of your age and income, where you live, or how careful you are.

Restoring your identity on your own can be time-consuming and stressful.  After a while, some people give up, leaving them to contend with the aftermath of identity theft for years to come, including fraudulent bills, collections activity, damaged credit and even criminal records.

Fully Managed Identity Theft Recovery – For only $0.95 per month – less than $12 per year – IDSafechoice provides you with the reassurance that if you suspect identity theft or if your personal information becomes compromised, a professional, certified and licensed Recovery Advocate is standing by, ready to restore your good name – no matter how long it takes.

As a Personal Checking, NOW or Money Market accountholder, you are eligible to receive the fully-managed recovery services through IDSafeChoice. This unique group program provides you and your family members with the benefit of fully-managed identity recovery, if you become the victim of identity theft. This includes coverage for you, the accountholder, as well as up to three generations of family:

  • Your spouse or domestic partner,
    Your dependents up to age 25, and
    Your parents – living with you; living in elder care (assisted living, nursing home, or hospice); or deceased 12 months or less.

Identity Theft Expenses – Up to $10,000 in reimbursed expenses for recovering your identity, including legal expenses and lost wage reimbursement, with zero deductible. *

Lost Document Replacement – This service provides personalized one-on-one assistance to replace identity credential documents that have been lost, stolen or destroyed in connection with your identity fraud event.

One call to Nevada Bank and Trust will put you in touch with your own personal Recovery Advocate who will do all of the legwork for you to recover your good name. To report an identity theft, call or visit your local branch or call 775-289-3226.
