MAIN Arrow to HomeYour Money Arrow to InsuranceInsurance Arrow to Identity Insurance Identity Theft Insurance

1 percent of adults overall fall victim to identify theft in the U.S. today, but according to a government study, unauthorized access to checking accounts is the fastest growing form of identity theft.

An estimated 2 million U.S. adult Internet users fell victim last year, and electronic fraud is expected to grow as phishing e-mails become more sophisticated in attempting to make off with your savings account.

Whether insured or not against identity theft, victims are usually not held responsible for fraudulent credit card charges incurred by identity thieves and overall the chances of becoming a victim are minimal - for now at least.

If you think the odds are high enough to warrant an identity theft policy, the costs are minimal. For $15,000 to $25,000 of coverage, a majority of insurance companies charge an annual premium of $25. Some of the major carriers, like Travelers who first offered consumers identity theft insurance in 1999, now offers an expanded program that provides the services of a consumer fraud specialist who can help reclaim your identity.

On the Web, find out more about the pros and cons of identity theft insurance and what it covers, along with tips on buying a policy, expert advice on recovering your identity, and additional steps you can take to protect your good name and your good credit rating before you lose it...
