We shall pay you for the following:
- Reasonable and necessary costs incurred by you in the United States for re-filing applications for loans, grants or other credit instruments that are rejected solely as a result of a Stolen Identity Event;
- Reasonable and necessary costs incurred by you in the United States for notarizing affidavits or other similar documents, long distance telephone calls and postage solely as a result of your efforts to report a stolen identity event and/or amend or rectify records as to your true name or identity as a result of a Stolen Identity Event;
- Reasonable and necessary costs incurred by the insured for up to six credit reports from established credit bureaus (with no more than two reports from any one credit bureau) dated within 12 months after your discovery of a Stolen Identity Event.
b) Lost Wages
Actual lost wages earned in the United States, whether partial or whole days, for time taken off work and away from your work premises solely as a result of your efforts to amend or rectify records as to your true name or identity as a result of a stolen identity event. Actual lost wages includes remuneration for vacation days, discretionary days, floating holidays, and paid personal days and excludes business interruption or future earnings of a self-employed professional. Computation of lost wages for self-employed professionals must be supported by and will be based on prior year tax returns. Coverage is limited to wages lost 12 months after the insured’s discovery of a stolen identity event.
c) Legal defense fees and expenses
Reasonable and necessary fees and expenses incurred in the United States by you with our consent for an attorney appointed by us for:
- Defending any civil suit brought against you by a creditor or collection agency or entity acting on behalf of a creditor for non-payment of goods or services or default on a loan as a result of a Stolen Identity Event; and
- Removing any civil judgment wrongfully entered against you as a result of the Stolen Identity Event.
- Criminal defense for charges brought against you as a result of the Stolen Identity Event. However, we will only pay for this after it has been established by acquittal or dropping of charges because you were not in fact the perpetrator.
d) Unauthorized Electronic Fund Transfer Reimbursement
The principal amount, exclusive of interest and fees, incurred by you and caused by an Unauthorized Electronic Fund Transfer first occurring during the policy period for which you have sought reimbursement from the financial institution which issued the access device and holds the account from which funds were stolen, and for which you have not received reimbursement from any source. A Stolen Identity Event is the theft of your personal identification, social security number, or other method of identifying you, which has or could reasonably result in the wrongful use of such information, including but not limited to Stolen Identity Events occurring on or arising out of your use of the Internet. A Stolen Identity Event does not include the theft or unauthorized or illegal use of your business name, d/b/a or any other method of identifying your business activity.
An Unauthorized Electronic Fund Transfer is an electronic fund transfer from your personal deposit account initiated by a person other than you without the actual authority to initiate such transfer and from which you receive no benefit. An Unauthorized Electronic Fund Transfer does not include an electronic fund transfer initiated: 1) by a person who was furnished the access device to your account by you, unless you have notified the financial institution that transfers by such person are no longer authorized; 2) with fraudulent intent by you or any person acting in concert with you; 3) by the financial institution of its employee; or 4) from any business or commercial account.
The Master Policy provides benefits to you only if you report a Stolen Identity Event or an Unauthorized Electronic Fund Transfer to us at the contact number stated above as soon as you become aware of a Stolen Identity Event or Unauthorized Electronic Fund Transfer, but in no event later than 90 days after the Stolen Identity Event or Unauthorized Electronic Fund Transfer is discovered by you. In addition, you must follow the instructions given to you in a claims kits that you will be provided. These instructions will include notifying major credit bureaus, the Federal Trade Commission’s Identity Theft Hotline and appropriate law enforcement authorities. This claims kit will also instruct you how to file for benefits under the policy if the Stolen Identity Event or an Unauthorized Electronic Fund Transfer results in losses covered under the Master Policy.
You will only be covered if (1) you report the Stolen Identity Event or an Unauthorized Electronic Fund Transfer to us within 90 days of discovery, and (2) you first discover the Stolen Identity Event or Unauthorized Electronic Fund Transfer while you are enrolled in a Membership Program. You will not be covered if the Stolen Identity Event or Unauthorized Electronic Fund Transfer first occurs after termination of the Master Policy or termination of your membership in the Membership Program.
