In the event that identity theft occurs, you will be assigned a personal caseworker to take you through the resolution process.

This convenient, online tool helps streamline the identity theft prevention and recovery process. Members can choose to set fraud alerts, stop pre-approved credit offers, and stop unwanted telemarketing calls.
Triple-Bureau Credit Reports (2)
Get a full picture of your credit strength with credit reporting and scoring from all three major credit reporting agencies - Experian, Equifax and TransUnion.
Credit Alert® (3)
With 24-hour, daily credit monitoring, you'll be alerted automatically of certain negative changes to your credit. While it can't prevent identity theft, Credit Alert® can
greatly reduce its impact by allowing you to minimize the damage. In the unfortunate event you receive notification of a negative change, you'll be provided with access to the
Credit Information Hotline. The hotline is staffed with trained individuals ready to provide answers to commonly asked questions. If there are no changes to your credit,
you'll even receive a quarterly notification letting you know that nothing has changed. Your initial enrollment in Credit Alert® will be valid for one year with an option to re-enroll at no additional cost!
