Identity Theft Protection
When You Need It Most

What is Identity Theft?

Identity theft is a serious crime, affecting about 9 million Americans each year. While identity theft insurance can't prevent the crime from happening, it can minimize your losses and help you regain your good name after identity fraud.

Identity theft occurs when your personal information, such as your name, credit card number, or Social Security number, is stolen and used without your permission.

It also takes many forms – as thieves may use your identity to open a new credit card or charge up an existing one, steal from your bank account, take out a loan, or even rent an apartment. You may not even realize your identity has been stolen – at least not until you review your credit card statement and notice unfamiliar charges – or until you're contacted by a debt collector.

How Identity Theft Protection Works

The Hartford offers an optional protection called identity fraud expense coverage, which can be added to a homeowners, condo or renters insurance policy. Available at limits of $25,000 or $50,000, this identity theft insurance coverage pays for losses you incur, including legal fees.

Availability of identity fraud expense coverage varies by state.
