Identity theft is one of the fastest growing crimes in America, up 47% from the year before.1

Identity Theft Protection

Every online transaction leaves a trace behind, taking on a life of its own, which can put your credit and identity at risk. ID Watchdog is everywhere you can't be -- monitoring your credit and helping you better protect your identity.
This award-winning service includes:

  • Monitoring across your credit cards, bank accounts, loans, billions of public records, and even the dark web
  • Alerts when credit activity is detected which could be a sign of potential fraud
  • Family plans to help better protect the identities of children and adult family members in your household

 

Plan Information:

There are two ID Watchdog plans offered to Baystate Health employees. See the table below for plan information.

Plan Employee +Family Plan Differences
1B $6.95 $13.95 Single-bureau credit monitoring provides alerts when activity changes in a TransUnion credit report are detected. This single-bureau plan can be a good option if you are looking for an affordable identity theft protection service, offering consistency, access to proactive services and advanced tools at an affordable cost.
1B+3 $8.95 $17.95 Tri-bureau credit monitoring provides alerts when activity changes in TransUnion, Equifax, or Experian credit reports are detected. While this tri-bureau credit monitoring plan costs a little more ($2 - $4 per month), it provides all the same features of the 1B plan plus the best monitoring coverage of three bureaus, so any fraudulent activity can be detected quickly. On average, tri-bureau credit monitoring catches 43% more credit alerts than single-bureau.
