The information can be used to obtain credit, merchandise, and services in the name of the victim or to provide the thief with false credentials. The insurance may provide access to experienced identity theft case managers to guide you through the process of restoring control over your identity and reimburse related costs such as obtaining credit reports, lost wages, or loan application fees related to the theft. The insurance can be a stand-alone policy or added to a homeowners policy by endorsement.
