Red Flag Rules

RED FLAG RULES

In October 2008, the Inter-County Energy board of directors approved an Identity Theft Red Flag Prevention Policy.  The “Red Flag Rule” was mandated by the Federal Trade Commission and has been implemented by the cooperative.

The Red Flag Rule requires all financial institutions and creditors to implement an “Identity Theft Prevention Program” for the purpose of detecting, preventing, and mitigating identity theft for their covered accounts. The rule applies to “creditors” who maintain one or more accounts and in the rule, the term “UtilityCompanies,” which includes Inter-County Energy, is defined as creditors.

Because of this rule and the related policy, you may be asked to provide additional information and identification when you make inquiries regarding your service/account with Inter-County.  Please be patient with us as we work to ensure that we are compliant with this requirement.
