The Good

  • Fully-Managed Restoration Services
  • Credit Monitoring Services
  • Identity Protection Services

Fully-Managed Restoration Services

In the event of identity theft, customers have access to advocates who will help them throughout the entire recovery process. In addition, specialists will create and maintain an extensive case profile and assist with security freezes and fraud alerts. Farmers Insurance can help with financial, medical, criminal, and tax identity recovery.

Credit Monitoring Services

Farmers Insurance provides credit monitoring from all three major credit bureaus (Experian, Equifax, and TransUnion). Customers also receive an annual credit report.

Identity Protection Services

In addition to credit monitoring, Farmers Insurance also provides members with internet scanning, bank account monitoring, social security number monitoring, and legal protection to better prevent identity theft.

The Bad

  • Limited Theft Loss Coverage
  • No Antivirus Software
  • Requirements

Limited Theft Loss Coverage

Farmers Insurance provides customers with up to $28,500 in expenses and $1,500 indemnity for identity theft-related losses. While this is better than nothing, many other companies in the industry offer up to $1 million in coverage.

No Antivirus Software

Farmers Insurance does not provide antivirus software of any kind to help customers protect sensitive online data.

Requirements

You must have homeowners insurance or renters insurance through Farmers to qualify for ID protection. 

The Bottom Line

Farmers Insurance offers several identity protection and restoration services. However, the company's insurance coverage is limited and no antivirus software is offered.

We had fraud that occurred on a credit card and Farmers notified us and took care of the problem. Kelli M. did a great job speaking with the credit card company and with follow up.
