Identity Protection Benefit No Longer Available to Employees

| July 25, 2014

To all benefits eligible employees:

Last week, Webster University was notified that Griffin Protection Group will no longer offer identity protection services to existing Webster University staff or family member participants after Aug. 31, 2014. They are no longer accepting any new subscribers, effective immediately.

Griffin’s web server which supports these services experienced a power interruption and resultant electrical surge which caused it to be damaged beyond recovery. The investment to reestablish this service was determined to be too costly for Griffin to offer on-going identity protection services. Be assured, during this period and even now, secure client data was unaffected and it remains secure and protected.

Griffin Protection Group will be sending out a notice directly to all existing subscribers, including family members, who have this coverage. Human Resources along with the Insurance Committee will be exploring alternatives for offering this service in the upcoming open enrollment period for 2015 coverage.

If you have any questions regarding this information, contact Webster Human Resources at humanresources@webster.edu or 314-968-6961.
