New York — MetLife is enhancing its travel assistance offering by adding Identity Theft Solutions as a standard benefit, the New York life insurer and employee benefits provider reports. Offered in partnership with, and administered by, the U.S. division of Paris-based AXA Assistance USA Inc., travel assistance is an optional feature available with MetLife’s Accidental Death and Dismemberment (AD&D) products and Business Travel Accident (BTA) insurance—and part of MetLife’s portfolio of group life products.

The Federal Trade Commission estimates that more than 8 million adults have their identities stolen each year. “Restoring one’s good name after an identity theft can be a stressful and complicated process,” notes Graham Cox, VP, life product management, MetLife. “That’s why access to educational resources to help prevent identity theft is so important. Should it occur, having personal assistance during this challenging time can help employees expedite a resolution. Identity Theft Solutions can help employers optimize the value of their group life benefits, while providing a living benefit that employees can use today.”
