Two Voluntary Benefits That Will Make You an HR Rock Star - Identity Theft & Legal Services Plans

Two Voluntary Benefits That Will Make You an HR Rock Star - Identity Theft & Legal Services Plans
August 8, 2012 at 3:00 - 4:00 PM ET
Anita Koch, Group Benefits Specialist(LegalShield)
The reasons why employers are taking a close look at offering identity theft protection and legal plans to their employees as a voluntary group benefit can be measured in “dollars and sense.”

Let’s face it, employees have issues. Now, more than ever before, employees are dealing with legal issues, and many of those issues have financial implications that also cause stress. Studies show that employees with legal problems are absent 5 times more than average, use their medical benefits 4 times more than average, use sick leave twice as often as the average employee, and experience a substantial reduction in productivity.

And what about identity theft? Most people think it’s just about credit cards and bank accounts, but it’s much more than that. Social
Security numbers are being used to get jobs – now the IRS wants to know why you didn’t report that income. If someone gets a drivers license in your name and they get a DUI, what’s the likelihood they’re going to show up in court? … Now there’s a bench warrant out there with your name on it. Medical identity theft is the fastest growing and the scariest. Unlike financial identity theft, there's no clear cut way of disputing false medical claims or correcting inaccurate medical records. This is not only challenging - it can be extremely frustrating. If you are a victim, you could be facing thousands of dollars in unpaid charges; your credit could be negatively affected, and false, potentially dangerous information could be cluttering up your medical records for years.

Learn more about how identity theft and your employees’ legal issues affect your company and what you can do as an HR professional to mitigate that impact. When you bring in a voluntary employee benefit with no direct cost that has a positive influence on the company’s “bottom line” … you’ll deserve the title of HR Rock Star!
