Concerned about identity theft?
Citadel Identity Theft Protection
Citadel Identity Theft Protection
Citadel offers customers access to one of the nation’s most trusted identity detection and recovery services. Our ID theft subscription packages can cover an entire family and start at only $3.95 per month.
Fully Managed Identity Theft Recovery
As a subscriber, if you suspect your identity has been stolen or if your information is compromised, you can contact a personal Recovery Advocate who can complete the recovery work on your behalf, report on progress along the way, and be there for you until everything is restored – no matter how long it takes.
Your Recovery Advocate will:
- Assist in placing fraud alerts at the three major credit bureaus
- Review your credit reports to identify the extent of fraudulent activity
- Remediate fraudulent transactions, false accounts, and/or contracts signed
- Support law enforcement as they work to stop the criminal(s) using your identity
- Follow up with you for 12 months
If you subscribe to a Family Package, Fully Managed Identity Theft Recovery services automatically extend to cover three generations of your family (3G), including:
- Spouse or domestic partner
- Dependents under age 25 with the same permanent address
- IRS-qualified dependents
- Parents living with you or in elder care (nursing home, assisted living, or hospice)
All 3G family members are covered for 12 months after death as well—an important benefit as identity thieves target deceased individuals.
Lost Document Replacement
If important documents are lost or stolen, your Recovery Advocate can work with you to obtain replacements for the missing documentation.
Identity Theft Expense Reimbursement Insurance
All packages include $1,000,000* of Identity Theft Expense Reimbursement Insurance. This benefit covers out-of-pocket expenses incurred during the recovery of your identity, such as attorneys’ fees, lost wages, and more.
