PriorityONE Credit Union of Florida

Identity Theft Program

As part our commitment to fight the effects of identity theft and bring you programs of incredible value every day, PriorityONE provides our members with checking accounts access to comprehensive identity theft recovery services for a nominal monthly Security  Fee of $1.25.

If you suspect your identity has been stolen, one phone call to PriorityONE Credit Union will put you in touch with a certified Recovery Advocate. Your assigned Advocate will provide a complete assessment of the case, develop a specific Recovery Plan with you, and continue to work on your behalf until all suspect events have been resolved. They do all of the legwork!

Depending on your identity fraud incident, your Recovery Advocate will:

  • Perform research to determine the extent of the problem, including a review of all three credit reports (if appropriate)
  • Help you place “Fraud Alerts” with all three credit bureaus and with federal and local law enforcement agencies
  • Coordinate with financial institutions, government agencies, creditors, etc. to resolve incidents
  • Send you Progress Reports throughout your Identity Restoration
  • Confirm that your identity has been returned to your “Pre-Theft Status”
  • Work with law enforcement to help to arrest and prosecute the criminals
  • Follow up for 12 months after recovery

Types of identity fraud covered include: credit/debit card fraud, tax fraud, employment fraud, government documents and benefits fraud, medical fraud, and any other identity fraud recognized by the Federal Trade Commission. Plus, the identity fraud recovery service extends to cover up to 3 generations of your family members! (Please refer to Terms and Conditions for details.)

In addition, you have access to the following two services:
