Identity Theft and Cyber-Security Protection from MetLife Defender

An identity is stolen every 3 seconds in the United States. Every time you go online to pay bills, shop, or connect with friends and family, you may be putting your personal data at risk.

The American Association of Orthopaedic Surgeons (AAOS) is pleased to offer members MetLife DefenderSM, a proactive, comprehensive service to protect against a range of identity theft and other cyber risks.

Depending on how you structure your account, MetLife Defender can provide the following services:

  • Financial data protection: Proactively stops threats to your credit and debit card information before there’s a breach; guards your bank account information; monitors and protects credit scores; and provides immediate 24/7 assistance if your wallet is ever lost or stolen.

  • Health data monitoring: Protects against medical identity theft by proactively stopping exposure of data associated with your health records, medical insurance, Medicaid/Medicare information, and more.
  • Online child safety services: Monitors your children’s Facebook, Twitter, and Instagram accounts to protect against cyberbullying, predators, and other online threats, including identity theft of a minor.
