EDGEWOOD, Md., April 22, 2019 – APG Federal Credit Union (APGFCU) launched a unique checking account to help protect against identity theft and fraud. The new Member Protect Checking offers members identity theft protection along with other credit and web monitoring services.

“Part of our mission is to help our member-owners build and protect their wealth,” stated Chief Marketing Officer Brian Wilcox. “That’s why we developed this new product. It’s another way the credit union can provide the resources to help members keep their identities safe.”

According to Experian™, it typically takes three months for the majority of people to realize they have been a victim of identity theft. APGFCU’s new Member Protect Checking provides daily credit scores, reports, monitoring and alerts to minimize the impact of identity theft, and will notify the individual as soon as suspicious activity happens. The account also comes with fully managed identity theft recovery services to help assist the member in the event of identity theft or fraud.

The checking account includes dark web and social media monitoring, along with additional benefits, such as credit freeze assistance, high-risk transaction monitoring and mobile device protection.

Member Protect Checking is one of two new checking accounts APGFCU launched in 2019. The credit union introduced High Yield Checking in February 2019, which offers a higher rate based on account activity.
