Is identity theft protection worth it?
Just like any other type of insurance you might have, the cost of not having identity theft insurance far exceeds the cost of your premium.
The potential monetary loss, legal fees, and stress caused by your identity being stolen can impact your life and stability in a significant way. In a time when personal information is so vulnerable, it makes sense to set yourself up with protection for the worst case scenario.
