ID Theft

Identity Theft Consultation and Restoration Service

Identity theft is the fastest growing crime in America.

How’s that for a startling statistic?

As part of the many benefits included with your Georgia Farm Bureau membership, you have access to Identity Theft Consultation and Restoration Services. All eligible* family members in the household are covered and the service is included in your annual membership dues.

What Is Identity Theft?

Identity theft occurs when a thief uses an individual's personal identification information, such as a social security number, an address, and/or credit and debit card numbers without permission with the intent of committing fraud or other crimes.

 

How does ID Theft Consultation & Restoration Service work?

  • If a GFB member suspects that their identity has been stolen, they call the toll-free number listed below and speak with a trained Member Service Specialist.
  • After gathering some basic information, a thorough assessment of the member’s unique situation will be performed to determine the nature and extent of the identity theft event.
  • Once a determination has been made that a member’s identity has been stolen, the member is assigned a Personal Recovery Advocate and a case file is opened.
  • Utilizing a Limited Power of Attorney, the Personal Recovery Advocate will work on the member’s behalf to restore their identity to pre-theft status.
  • The Personal Recovery Advocate will remain assigned for as long as it takes to restore the member’s identity to pre-theft status.
