PCUA launches Sherpa Identity Protection

HARRISBURG, PA (April 29, 2015) –– Pennsylvania Credit Union Association (PCUA) today formally unveiled its new Sherpa Identity Protection product, delivering state-of-art technology for identity theft protection and restoration services.  Working with the leading provider of identity protection and fraud detection services, PCUA’s Sherpa product equips members with the tools they need to protect their personal information.  Should someone’s identity be compromised, they’ll have access to Sherpa’s certified identity theft restoration specialists.

“Credit unions are members’ most trusted source for financial information,” said Association Patrick Conway, president & CEO.  “With Sherpa, credit unions will be in a position to help their members proactively protect their identity and help them recover from any financial damage in the event of a data breach or identity theft.”

The Sherpa monitoring and reporting services product offers three levels of protection.  Members can choose between Base, Summit, or Peak.  Regardless of the level selected, Sherpa includes credit score monitoring, Internet surveillance monitoring, Social Security trace, full-service identity restoration, lost wallet protection, and up to $100 million in identity theft insurance with $0 deductible.

In advance of the formal unveiling of the product, several credit unions expressed an interest in being early adopters.  While several are completing their due diligence, Service 1st FCU, Danville was the first to sign a contract to offer the product.  “We were looking for an identity theft protection product and we really liked the way Sherpa was structured,” said Mike Thomas, Chief Financial Officer, Service 1st Federal Credit Union.  “We think it will be good for our members and our credit union.”
