Founded in 1928 in Los Angeles, California, Farmers Insurance provides auto, home, and small business insurance, as well as a number of other financial products and services. Farmers has also teamed up with Identity Theft 911 to provide identity theft protection to individuals and families.
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.
Farmers Insurance provides credit monitoring from all three major credit bureaus (Experian, Equifax, and TransUnion). Customers also receive an annual credit report.
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.
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.
Farmers Insurance does not provide antivirus software of any kind to help customers protect sensitive online data.
You must have homeowners insurance or renters insurance through Farmers to qualify for ID protection.
