Macalester offers faculty and staff members with 0.50 FTE and above a voluntary identity protection plan called IDShield that is administered through Legal Shield which is paid by the employee. The effective date of coverage for new employees is the 1st of the month following the date of hire. This benefit will be deducted from the first payroll each month.

Millions of people experience identity theft every year—but it only takes a few steps to protect yourself. Identity theft can be an easy problem to ignore—until you experience it yourself. IDShield is administered by LegalShield through its exclusive relationship with Kroll, the global leader in risk mitigation and response solutions. IDShield provides a team of dedicated licensed private investigators to restore your identity should it ever become compromised. For information, visit
