Secure Military ID for All Who Serve & Families

 

The VetRewards Card: Protecting Your Privacy with the Nationally Recognized Military ID from Veterans Advantage

Veterans Advantage is the secure ID solution for U.S. Military and Veterans to redeem military discounts. Our Military ID, the VetRewards Card, based on the authentication and verification software platform used by Veterans Advantage partners, has a longstanding and stellar record of secure identity authentication and identity protection.

Respect for Veteran Privacy

At Veterans Advantage, Veterans' privacy is always our top concern and priority.As current or former members of the United States Armed Forces, we are a protected class under the Privacy Act of 1974, which is legislation that prevents the unauthorized use of Active-Duty Military and Veterans personal data by the U.S. government and its agencies. Privacy Act protections do not extend to the handling and use of their data and personal information by commercial retailers.

There are laws that prohibit the copying of military IDs to protect the sensitive data on these IDs from mishandling, which can increase the risk of ID theft, but also heightens the risk of terrorism. To make a copy or upload online to verify military status for a discount is a federal crime punishable by fines and imprisonment.

Active Duty Military and Veterans should never provide their Social Security Number, not even the last 4 digits of the SSN, unless there is a government or IRS requirement to do so, and never for a retail discount. We must be vigilant about our data and avoid unnecessary disclosure in instances where it may be shared or sold, easily mishandled or stolen.

Note: If you become the unfortunate victim of ID theft, our ID Theft Restoration Services to assist you in your recovery are included free of charge in every member plan.

Best Practices In Privacy Protection with the VetRewards Card ID

According to the Federal Trade Commission, "de-identification" is the most highly effective method of protecting identity and the #1 most recommended best privacy practice as stated in its report: "Protecting Consumer Privacy in an Era of Rapid Change."

Veterans Advantage uses proprietary de-identification software technology to protect your personal information when you redeem a discount. We de-identify your personal information by issuing you a VetRewards Card with two unique codes that are non-personally identifiable: the VetRewards Card Member ID and 10-digit Travel Discount Code.

Veterans Advantage shares only your two unique de-identifier codes with our partners so they may verify you as eligible for their discounts. You may use your codes without fear of compromising the security of your personal identity or increasing your risk of identity theft when redeeming your Veterans Advantage discounts.

Veterans Advantage works to protect your data and privacy rights.

Your identity is always protected.

Warning!

Be wary of online sites or store retailers that promise a military discount if you provide your military ID, DD214, your date of birth, or SSN. Veterans have twice the rate of ID theft than the general population. According to the Veterans Administration and FTC, this is from their ingrained habit of showing their government military IDs, and other documents such as a military pay-stub, DD214s or VA Medical Cards, that often contain highly sensitive information, such as SSN and birth date. It is simply not worth the risk to your personal identity,or breaking the law, for a 10% retail discount or some cash-back scheme. The price you pay for the misuse or mishandling of your personal information is the nightmare of ID Theft or increased risk of terrorism.

Veterans Advantage: Protecting Your Personal Information

To enroll in Veterans Advantage, or be verified as eligible for a Military discounts with our partners, we do not require government ID's or sensitive personal information, such as your SSN, in accordance with military directives and federal law. Veterans Advantage never sells, shares or rents the personal information that we use to deliver your benefits and services, not even with our own partners.

Founded and run by Military Veterans, Veterans Advantage is supported through our member plans with our OurCAREPackage (value of $1,000+) that includes the VetRewards Card ID to access partner discounts. We do not sell,rent or share member's personal information with third party advertisers or our program partners to generate revenue.

Emergency Accidental Insurance

 

$5,000 in Accident Insurance ("AD&D")

 

Accidental Injury is a Leading Cause of Death: Be Prepared for the Unexpected with $5,000 of Accident Insurance.

 

No one likes to think about it. But accidents are a part of everyday life. When accidents happen, their financial impact can be devastating. More people ages 1–44 die from accidental injuries than from any other cause, including cancer, HIV, or the flu.1 OurCAREPackage's benefits coverage with $5,000 in Accident or "AD&D" Insurance can help ensure financial protection is available for you and your loved ones.

Accident "AD&D" Insurance Plan Benefits

To help protect you and your family from the unforeseen financial hardship of a serious accident that causes death or dismemberment, your Veterans Advantage AD&D coverage delivers you the following valuable benefits:

  • Up to $5,000 in coverage, depending upon the injury or loss.
  • No physical exam required.
  • Coverage for all age groups.
  • Great supplemental insurance--benefits are paid in addition to any other insurance coverage you may already have.
  • Coverage 24/7, worldwide, whether you are home or away, or on or off the job.
  • Provided through your membership with no additional fees or charges for coverage.
  • Additional family members seeking insurance coverage need to also be a Veterans Advantage member. To add family memberships, please call us toll-free 1-866-838-2774.

Eligibility and Coverage

Members of Veterans Advantage who have OurCAREPackage's are eligible for this plan under our group insurance policy, regardless of your age or health.

No matter how careful you are, accidents do happen. Accidental injury remains the number one cause of death for people under 40 and the fifth leading cause of death for all ages.2 While no one can predict when or where an accident may occur, you can be prepared with your insurance coverage from Veterans Advantage.

There are no additional member fees or charges for coverage. You cannot purchase this plan independent of your membership. This plan will provide you with protection in the event of an accidental death or a covered injury. It is designed to reduce the financial burdens associated with an accident that causes the loss of life, limb, or sight.

No one likes to think about the worst occurring. However, it is a comfort to know that your family members can receive a death benefit in the event of a fatal accident during a business trip, vacation or recreational pursuits, or simply while going about daily activities. You will receive 24-hour-a-day coverage, 365 days a year, whether you are at home, at work or at play.

If you have loved ones whose security would be threatened if an accident took your life suddenly, or you could not earn an income owing to a dismembering disability or loss of sight, your "AD&D" insurance plan will deliver you a valuable financial benefit, without having to purchase additional life insurance to cover such a possibility. And, if you already have other forms of insurance, it offers an added layer of protection.

You may believe that if you do have an accident, it will most likely be on the job, and workman's compensation benefits will provide coverage. Our plan will also pay you for accidents on the job, and provides supplemental coverage to any existing insurance. But, it is important to note that, of all the injury-related deaths in 2004 involving workers, roughly 90 percent occurred while employees were off the job.3

Travel Guard Identity Theft Restoration Services

 

Veterans Advantage is a strong advocate for Veterans' privacy.

Our VetRewards Card, used to power partner's military discounts, is the first universal military ID built to safeguard Veterans' personal information and protect their privacy. We require the minimum amount of information necessary to deliver our member services. We keep the Veteran's personal information strictly confidential and do not share, rent or sell it with any other party.

Recent FTC Report* findings show that military Veterans, active duty military and their families are at highest risk for fraud and ID theft---more than double that of other consumers. A separate VA Study** found Veterans have higher rates of ID theft due to poor employee handling of government-issued veteran IDs used to verify service.

In addition, to help address high rates of ID theft recently reported in the military community (see box at right) Veterans Advantage purchases Prepaid Identity Theft Restoration Services from Travel Guard and provides this service to our members at no additional charge in our Veterans Advantage OurCAREPackage. This is coverage that no Military Veteran or a Veteran family member should be without.

In the unfortunate event a member happens to fall victim to fraud or ID theft, they can access OurCAREPackage coverage as a member of Veterans Advantage. This benefit alone can save thousands of dollars in taking the necessary steps to restore a stolen identity. Over 81% of our members rate this benefit as “Really worth it —a great benefit!”

HOW PREPAID IDENTITY THEFT RESTORATION SERVICES WORKS

Identity Theft Assistance Services from Travel Guard will help a member that has fallen victim to ID theft, by ordering and reviewing credit bureau records, notifying financial institutions, credit card companies, and taking other necessary critical steps on their behalf.

Travel Guard's trained identity theft counselors are available to help 24 hours a day, 7 days a week with the valuable knowledge and assistance to review and resolve ID theft issues. From providing prevention guidance with reviews of accounts and educational materials, to full assistance in the event that a member's ID is stolen or experiences fraud, the following services are provided at no additional cost with Veterans Advantage:

AVOID FALLING VICTIM TO ID THEFT! MORE VETERANS ADVANTAGE HELP

Learn More About Our Veteran Privacy Advocacy

Click here for a recent press release informing all Veterans and Military families.

To best protect veterans from becoming a victim of ID theft or fraud, Veterans Advantage advocates that its members be vigilant in self-administering the following protocols to best safeguard their identity:

1. Be Safe: Never use Social Security Number, or DD214, birth date, mother's maiden name, or other highly sensitive personally identifiable information (“PII”) to obtain a retail discount. Requiring this level of information for a discount is a bad business practice and considered an 'over reaching' data requirement. Our partners, who use our VetRewards Card ID to verify their military discounts only use the non-personally identifiable Member ID and Travel Discount Code and do not collect members' data. Veterans Advantage never collects highly sensitive PII or shares any PII with third parties.

2. Be Smart: Don't be lured by so-called "free" military discount offers or "free memberships" in military discount sites. Veterans are often sitting ducks for this kind of offer. Understand that nothing is free. In order to fund company operations, personal data is often sold, rented or shared to advertisers and Big Data companies to generate revenues, compromising personal and financial security.

3. Be Suspicious: Dig to find how the data is used and where the data is going. Read the online Privacy Policy carefully for online businesses. Be especially wary of online start-ups without an established business history. Startups can be highly susceptible to bankruptcies, mergers or sale of data to an unknown party, sometimes outside the country and outside the reach of U.S. law. Check the BBB for a business's rating.

4. Be Secure: Data grabs are big business today. Only do business with a trusted organization with a longstanding record of protecting veterans' privacy and their best interests regarding use of data. Do business with companies that do not require overreaching data, and retailers that do not require government-issued IDs to access military discounts.

Now you can feel good knowing your membership is doing the same, by supporting our efforts to help military families, including yours. Since 2001, Veterans Advantage has established a broad range of initiatives to support the families of those who served or are serving our country. We have benefits for the families in our program, and through our charitable partnerships with leading organizations that specialize in providing valuable services and support for our military families.

Veterans Day: A Thrill of a Lifetime for Members to March in New York City

Each Veterans Day Parade in New York City, the largest of its kind in the country, Veterans Advantage regularly joins thousands of active duty and veteran marchers at this nationally televised event, in conjunction with many of our key benefit partners who join us in giving thanks.

Veterans Advantage members are granted exclusive access to march on the parade route, aboard and alongside the Veterans Advantage float, just by showing their VetRewards Card.

Heroes Meet Heroes: A Night of Inspiration and Gratitude

Veterans Advantage also hosts its annual "Heroes Meet Heroes" event for VetRewards Card members in New York City. Each year, Veterans in the national community, industry VIPs, and local vets participate in a dynamic and festive gathering.

Veterans, Active Duty Military and their families get to unite with Olympic athletes and share a memorable evening honoring their mutual, strength and commitment to excellence, as well as the bravery and sacrifice of our Veterans.

This event, held at the New York Athletic Club, is also available free to all those with the VetRewards Card.

Testimonials

Linda Ranweiler, Member Since 2008: "We use the discounts all the time, and last year it paid off, big time. He [Linda's husband] was in a paragliding accident in Mexico and hospitalized with multiple broken bones (pelvis, femur, heel). I called the number for Travel Guard, a benefit provided by Veterans Advantage at *no* additional cost, year round.They were incredible -- talked to me (and the doctors) daily, set up conference calls between MX and US surgeons, and sent a Leer jet to MEDEVAC us from Toluca hospital to Santa Fe NM hospital. That alone was worth $25,000 …and their coordination of it all saved me the hassle. So, so thankful."
