HSB Offers Identity Theft Insurance Through Employers

The Hartford Steam Boiler Inspection and Insurance Company (HSB), part of Munich Re, is extending the availability of its identity theft insurance and services to the employees of small to mid-sized businesses as a standalone policy for employers, the company said today.

HSB Identity Recovery insurance has expense coverage and personal case management services similar to those HSB has provided through client insurance companies, agents and brokers for almost a decade, insuring more than seven million people against identity theft and fraud.

The coverage pays for expenses and services to help victims restore their name and credit to pre-theft status when their personal information is lost or stolen. It is available through agents and brokers to employers who can provide the identity theft coverage to employees.

In addition to paying expenses such as lost wages, child and elder care, the cost of credit reports, postage, shipping and fees, HSB Identity Recovery coverage can pay for legal fees involving civil or criminal complaints and mental health counseling related to the identity theft (in most states).

Identity theft services include a toll-free help line, access to a professional identity restoration firm which will work with the victim through the entire process, case management performed by licensed investigators, and an option to use a limited power of attorney.
