LifeLock Represents Value for Employers and Benefits Brokers
Tempe, AZ (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Employers and benefits brokers looking for a voluntary benefit that provides protection, value and financial wellness to employees should look no further than LifeLock, Inc., an industry leader in proactive identity theft protection. LifeLock offers its service through payroll deduction at a special discount for employees and can easily integrate employee identity theft protection into existing benefits plans. LifeLock's service is an opportune way to enrich existing benefits plan with identity theft protection from a nationally recognizable brand name.
The LifeLock service is distributed by voluntary benefits carriers, and through key industry implementation partners. In addition to the service, LifeLock has developed a comprehensiveemployee benefits portal for carriers and general agencies, enabling broker agencies to easily access the education and complete sales support, making selling to groups both transparent and efficient.
Technology has introduced an "information on-demand society" where sensitive information of millions of people can be stolen, distributed and sold within minutes. According to the 2012 Identity Fraud Report from Javelin Strategy & Research, there were 1.4 million new victims in 2011 over 2010. Often there is a delay between the time a consumer detects new account fraud and the time that stolen information is misused. According to the Javelin report, the delay in detection can be as long as 151 days. While many of the hours an affected employee spends to resolve identity theft can occur during work, LifeLock's proactive protection and remediation can allow for continued employee productivity in the workplace.
The Federal Trade Commission announced in March 2012 that identity theft was the No. 1 complaint received by the agency in 2011.
With the potential financial, legal and emotional costs of identity theft, employees can become discouraged and overwhelmed while attempting to navigate through the remediation alone. Once enrollment for LifeLock service is complete, monitoring for identity threats within the LifeLock network begins immediately.
