“I didn’t know Agents offer Identity Theft Protection?”.. this is a statement I often hear when we tell people about identity theft protection as an employee benefit.
Most of our partner agents say that many of their clients are unsure of how they are exposed to cybersecurity losses, what cyber services are available as part of an ID theft protection program, or that they underestimate the threat. Also indicating that they just didn’t know Identity Theft Protection was a benefit they could even offer!
If we are serious about protecting our clients and their employees we need to first understand why we as agents need to offer this service in the first place.
The Problem Your Clients Already Face
The reality is that employees are already getting their information stolen and it is impacting employees. We get it though, the costs of benefits seem to constantly increase, and running a business is getting more and more expensive. BUT employers are already paying the price of identity theft due to absenteeism and lost productivity from employees who have had their identity stolen.
