Identity Theft Protection:

NYU has partnered with ID Watchdog from Equifax to provide identity theft protection, replacing Allstate Identity Protection.

Exciting new benefits by ID Watchdog offer lower premiums and enhanced benefits in order to help employees and their families protect themselves against identity theft.

Enroll in the Benefit Resource Center during Annual Enrollment to elect the coverage. If you have Allstate Identity Protection you will automatically be placed into the ID Watchdog Platinum Plus Plan. If you want to disenroll you may waive out during Annual Enrollment for January 1, 2023.
