Identity protection for you and your family.
Identity theft affects millions of Americans each year. LegalShield offers two high quality identity theft plans to help protect and restore your identity. LegalShield Identity Theft Plan provides standard identity monitoring and the Identity Theft Premium Plan has more comprehensive monitoring. Best of all, both services provide Comprehensive Identity Restoration from Kroll Advisory Solutions. So in the unfortunate event something does happen to your identity, you’ll have professional help in getting your identity restored to what it was before the fraud occurred. To ensure you have the best coverage possible, the LegalShield plans include you, your spouse and up to 8 dependent children under the age of 18.

Limitations and exclusions for Comprehensive Restoration by Kroll Advisory Solutions
- Kroll Advisory provides a wide range of identity theft restoration services for all LegalShield Plan members. In order to perform comprehensive ID restoration services for an identity theft victim, however, the victim must provide to Kroll Advisory a signed and notarized copy of Kroll Advisory?s Limited Power of Attorney, a copy of the police report citing the instance of identity theft, copies of government-issued photo identification (such as a driver?s license), and other identification information, including Social Security card and utility bill(s) (for proof of address), a completed Federal Trade Commission Identity Theft Affidavit citing the instance of identity theft, and any other additional items that may be relevant to the type of fraud committed.
- Coverage is not provided for the following events:
- Legal Remedy – Any Stolen Identity Event where the victim is unable or unwilling to prosecute the person who caused the victim to suffer the fraud or its consequences.
- Dishonest Acts – Any dishonest, criminal, malicious or fraudulent acts, if the Member(s) who suffered the fraud personally participated in, directed or had knowledge of such acts.
- Financial Loss – Membership Services do not cover any financial losses attributed to the Stolen Identity Event, including but not limited to, money stolen from a wallet or other monetary losses, unauthorized purchases of retail goods or services online, by phone, by mail or direct.
- Pre-existing Stolen Identity Event Limitations – If the victim either had knowledge of, or reasonably should have had knowledge of, the pre-existing stolen identity event based on information provided to the victim prior to enrollment in the program, such an event and the consequences related to it are not covered.
- Business – A covered stolen identity event does not include business losses, including but not limited to the theft or unauthorized or illegal use of the victim?s business name, DBA or any other method of identifying the victim?s business activity.
- Dormancy or inactivity – If the victim cannot or does not provide the items designated in paragraph 1 above, or, having initiated restoration, if the victim fails to respond to or cooperate in activity facilitated by Kroll Advisory for the purpose of ID restoration.
- Incurable – Because of the nature of the activity associated with identity theft, some issues cannot be resolved. For example, if a fraudulent act results in the victim?s name being improperly placed on a government agency?s restricted list (e.g., a ?no fly? list) neither Kroll Advisory nor LegalShield can promise removal of the victim?s name.
- Legal services are not separately provided under ID theft restoration services. LegalShield Plan members should consult their individual plans to determine availability of legal services.
