Ready Access Overdraft Protection

We understand that life is busy. Forgetting to record a check or debit can easily happen to anyone. For greater peace of mind, link your checking account to Ready Access, an unsecured revolving line of credit. If your account is overdrawn, your Ready Access line will automatically transfer money to cover your transactions (coverage up to a pre-approved limit).


Identity theft is a crime.  The crime occurs when someone invades your life, taking pieces of your personal idenfiying information and assumes it as their own, causing damage to your credit and your name.  With ID TheftSmart, you can breathe easy.  If your identity is ever stolen while enrolled in ID TheftSmart, the investigators at Kroll spring into action.  They step in as your advocate, fully committed to restoring your identity to pre-theft status as quickly and efficiently as possible. 

 

Restoration

ID TheftSmart is your answer in the event your identity is ever compromised.  Investigators will work on your behalf to restore and preserve your identity.  Not only will you receive full service identity restoration from a licensed experienced investigator should you become a victim, but you will also have a resource to help answer questions or provide guidance on security and fraud related concerns, in order to head off possible issues before they materialize. 

 

If your identity is stolen, our licenced ID TheftSmart investigators will:

  • Confirm identity fraud and determine its nature and scope

  • Assist in obtaining a police report

  • Provide a tri-merge credit report and perform non-credit searches

  • Work on your behalf until ALL identity theft issues have been verifiably resolved

  • Place seven-year fraud victim statements with credit reporting agencies when applicable
