Recent studies have shown that ID theft is on the rise again nationwide. In 2012 12.6 million Americans fell victims of identity theft. There are several ways you can protect yourself from ID theft. Several companies offer "stand-alone" type insurance policies against ID theft that will protect your ID from being stolen, and then help you repair your life if it is comprimized. That is a good way to cover yourself. You also might want to consider adding on ID theft protection to your home owners policy. Many home owners policies offer it automatically these days but not all do. The cost to add ID theft is usually minimal and can offer you $25,000 in coverage or more.
