AOPA Partners with LifeLock to Protect Pilot's Identities
Fight Back against the fastest growing crime in America
More than 11 million Americans had their identity stolen last year and pilots are at even greater risk – up until a few years ago, a pilot's certificate number was his social security number and any time that you rented an aircraft it was common practice that the FBO had to photocopy your pilot certificate and driver's license. If you were a CFI, you signed the logbook and included your social security number. This has left your personal identifiable information to circulate through an untold number of hands. That's where LifeLock comes in – as the leader in proactive identity theft protection, LifeLock helps prevent identity theft before it happens.
Wallet stolen? One call to LifeLock and they'll do the rest to cancel your cards and have them reissued. LifeLock's eRecon™ Service continually monitors the Internet for any illegal selling or trading of your personal data. Your identity is protected in dozens of ways when you enroll in LifeLock.
You really can't go wrong as a LifeLock member. In fact, LifeLock prides itself on its industry-leading $1 Million Service Guarantee. That means that if you are a victim of identity theft while you are enrolled as a LifeLock member that LifeLock will spend up to $1 million on your behalf to pay for lawyers, investigators, consultants and "whatever else it takes" the company says to restore your good name.
When you join LifeLock, you won't simply be one of its nearly two million members. AOPA has worked closely with LifeLock to ensure their services meet the specific and unique needs of a pilot, and special protocols have been created to assist pilots in the event of lost or stolen airman documentation. This means one phone call for you and LifeLock and AOPA will go to work helping you recover your important documentation.
AOPA has negotiated with M2 Benefit Solutions, a Certified LifeLock partner, a 10% discount that will allow AOPA members, along with their family and friends, to help protect them from the risk of identity theft for only $99.00 per year or $9 per month. Not only does LifeLock protect your identity, but part of the revenue goes to AOPA to protect your freedom to fly.
