Identity theft is rampant in today’s ‘Digital Age’. An identity theft can leave you with large debts accrued in your name, or a scarred credit score. Resolving these financial errors could take months, and sometimes years. With Identity Assure plan from Bajaj Finserv, you can get coverage for lost wages, legal expenses, financial obligations or any other miscellaneous expenses incurred due to identity theft.
With Identity Assure, you can get coverage up to Rs. 1,50,000 at a nominal price of Rs. 449.
Applying for Identity Assure is a hassle-free process. You can simply fill in an online application form and pay via net banking, UPI, mobile wallet, or credit/debit card.
