Safeguard Your Livelihood
When someone breaks into your home or hits your car, the results are usually immediate and obvious. But when someone steals your identity or compromises your online accounts, disaster can strike right under your nose and come with disastrous consequences. It can take days or even weeks to realize that your information has been compromised, and by then, you could already be in heavy financial trouble.
Identity theft insurance can help cover you in case someone manages to steal your identity. Barnette and Coates will work with you to assess your risk and protect your livelihood with a reliable and comprehensive identity theft insurance policy.
Credit card fraud, loans taken out in your name, stolen bank accounts and bogus insurance policies are all possible means to compromise your identity. As the world has grown increasingly digital, this problem has increased in scope. Identity theft can happen through physical circumstances (such as losing your wallet) as easily as it can through seemingly innocent Internet browsing (such shopping on a malicious site and giving key personal details to the wrong people). More and more identity thefts occur each year through online venues. Major data breaches of businesses and digital databases are also sources of concern.

Identity theft insurance is often tied to home insurance or renters insurance as an "endorsement" to a currently existing policy, but it's an important form of insurance on its own.
