Credit Monitoring

This benefit helps you stay informed of your credit activity. AllClear ID will send detailed alerts when banks and creditors use your identity to open new accounts so that you can take action when needed. This service is an additional layer of protection that also includes a $1,000,000 identity theft insurance policy. The credit monitoring service also allows you to set up fraud alerts that require creditors to take extra precautions to verify the identity of the applicant before opening a new account.  You can set, renew or remove a 90-day fraud alert from within your AllClear ID account.  To utilize this service, employees need to formally enroll with AllClear ID.

Identity Theft Repair

You can access this service if you have ever been or become a victim of identity theft, even if it occurred prior to becoming a Stanford employee. It is available to all benefits-eligible employees while they are employed with Stanford and no formal enrollment is required. A dedicated investigator from AllClear ID will act as your advocate and initiate the dispute process to help recover financial losses, restore your credit report and return your identity to its pre-fraud state. As there are some conditions regarding financial recovery, individuals should review the disclosures provided by AllClear to become fully informed about its services.

In May 2016, Blue Shield notified members and enrolled dependents that they are offering both identity repair and credit monitoring services through AllClear ID.  These are similar programs to what the university is offering, but only if you are an active Blue Shield medical plan member.  If you are a Blue Shield member and signed up for these services you do not have to sign up through Stanford University.  If you are enrolled in the Kaiser or SHCA medical plan, the Blue Shield offering would not be available to you.
