October 7, 2008 ( - Customers and employees of Phoenix-based payroll processing company AmCheck can now take advantage of an identity theft protection offering as a result of a partnership between the company and LifeLock.

A press release said AmCheck has added LifeLock’s services to its list of human resource benefits, giving clients and employees the opportunity to take advantage of LifeLock’s identity theft protection package at a discounted rate.

According to the announcement, members are also entitled to LifeLock’s WalletLock, eRecon and TrueAddress services:

  • WalletLock works to cancel and replace all documents and personal identifying information inside a wallet if it is lost or stolen.
  • eRecon is a regular patrol of the Internet in search of social security numbers, credit card numbers, driver’s license numbers and email addresses of LifeLock members to protect against the information being illegally traded or sold online.
  • LifeLock’s TrueAddress service searches to see if members have had a change of address form filed and alerts them to ensure they are aware of the change.
