Columbia, SC (October 15, 2013) — The State of South Carolina and CSID, a leading provider of global, enterprise-level identity protection and fraud detection technologies and solutions, today announced that taxpayers impacted by last years’ SC Department of Revenue security breach can begin enrolling in the state-provided identity protection coverage beginning October 24, 2013. Eligible taxpayers can sign up for the identity protection coverage through or by calling 855-880-2743. Enrollment will remain open until October 1, 2014. CSID’s service will end on October 31, 2014, unless the State chooses to renew the contract.

“The goal of the State of South Carolina has been to provide the best in identity and credit protection, and that is what the taxpayers are getting with the comprehensive services of CSID. South Carolina and CSID will work to ensure taxpayers are aware of the state-provided services available, including not only in-state residents, but those residing out of state as well,” said Department of Revenue Director Bill Blume.

South Carolina residents will be provided with ongoing information about enrollment and eligibility through media and public announcements. This will include advertisements in local newspapers and magazines, on radio stations and via local news coverage. CSID will attempt to contact eligible persons living outside of South Carolina via mail.

“We highly encourage eligible South Carolina taxpayers to take advantage of CSID’s identity protection coverage to ensure the integrity of their families’ personal information” said CSID President, Joe Ross. “For any questions about eligibility or enrollment, citizens should keep an eye on local media and news coverage. We will share information through those venues and at”
