Haley: Agencies to help people sign up for monitoring service

Posted: Updated:

COLUMBIA, S.C. (AP) -- Gov. Nikki Haley has directed her Cabinet to come up with creative ways to help South Carolina residents sign up for a credit monitoring service offered through the state.

The Republican governor gave directors of her 16 Cabinet agencies until Tuesday to submit their ideas, which state attorneys will review for privacy concerns.

The state is offering a year of the Experian service ProtectMyID after an international computer hacker accessed millions of Social Security numbers and business records from the state's tax collection agency.

The service includes a year of daily monitoring of the three credit bureaus and a lifetime of over-the-phone help on resolving identity theft after it happens. Haley says she wishes she had such help through the process when her identity was stolen years ago.
