Identity theft is the deliberate use of someone else’s identity, usually as a method to gain a financial advantage or obtain credit and other benefits in the other person’s name, and perhaps to the other person’s disadvantage or loss. The person whose identity has been assumed may suffer adverse consequences if they are held responsible for the perpetrator’s actions. Identity theft occurs when someone uses another’s personally identifying information, like their name, identifying number, or credit card number, without their permission, to commit fraud or other crimes.
ID Watchdog, provider of consumer-facing identity theft protection and resolution services, was proud to be honored by Benefitfocus at their One Place 2017 Celebrate Community Awards with an Outstanding Communicator Award in 2017. The Benefitfocus community selects one employer, one insurance carrier and one partner recipient each year.
“We were extremely honored to be selected by Benefitfocus and their community as a company that has transformed the benefits process for employees and consumers,” says ID Watchdog CEO Michael Greene. “At ID Watchdog, we strive for excellence in every area of our consumer experience, and it is always nice to know that we are succeeding in our endeavors.”
ID Watchdog provides comprehensive identity protection services to employer groups, and is fully committed to educating and communicating the importance of identity protection to all consumers. ID Watchdog provides a full Marketing Integration Guide to help incorporate this piece of voluntary benefits selection seamlessly into the process of benefits selection, and it was specifically this piece that was awarded by the Benefitfocus community.
“We understand and emphasize the importance of identity theft protection and some of the unique benefits of the ID Watchdog service,” says Greene, “but we also understand the importance of clear communication with the consumers, which is why we created such an extensive Marketing Integration Guide. We hope we can continue to help companies like Benefitfocus make a positive impact by helping consumers better understand the benefits available to them.”
