Identity Fraud


We are pleased to announce that Peerless/Safeco Insurance now offers a new homeowners’ policy endorsement to help you in the event you become the victim of identity fraud.

You can obtain similar coverage through all of your other homewoner companies as well.

Protect yourself with Identity Fraud Expenses* Coverage Endorsement.

We are pleased to announce that an optional Identity Fraud Expenses Coverage Endorsement is available for attachment to your Peerless/Safeco Insurance homeowners' policy. When you purchase the optional endorsement, it provides up to $15,000 in coverage to reimburse you for expenses* made necessary to restore your credit history if you become a victim of identity fraud.

Subject to the endorsement provisions, coverage is provided for:

  • Costs for notarizing affidavits or similar documents attesting to fraud required by financial institutions or similar credit grantors or credit agencies.
  • Costs for certified mail to law enforcement agencies, credit agencies, financial institutions or similar credit grantors.
  • Actual loss of earnings (but not loss of other income) resulting from time taken off work to complete fraud affidavits, meet with or talk to law enforcement agencies, credit agencies and/or legal counsel, up to a maximum payment of $500 per week for a maximum period of up to four weeks.
  • Loan application fees for re-applying for a loan or loans when the original application is rejected solely because the lender received incorrect credit information.
  • Attorney fees, incurred with our prior consent, for defending lawsuits brought against an "insured" by merchants, financial institutions or their collection agencies; removing of any criminal or civil judgments wrongly entered against an "insured"; and challenging the accuracy or completeness of any information in a consumer credit report.
  • Reasonable charges incurred for long distance telephone calls to merchants, law enforcement agencies, financial institutions or similar credit grantors, or credit agencies to report or discuss an actual "identity fraud."

Please contact your independent agent for details and more information about our valuable optional Identity Fraud Expenses Coverage Endorsement.
