2. members are automatically registered at no additional cost in Lost Wallet, a feature to protect credit, charge, debit, and ATM cards.  With Lost Wallet, you can call if your cards are lost or stolen and an assigned Fraud Resolution agent will help you cancel them..

With’s ChildSecure™ feature, for an additional fee, members can help protect their minor children from identity theft by closely monitoring their enrolled children’s SSN, credit and personal information.

3. offers protection specifically designed to aid consumers who are victims of medical identity theft.
