to prove your identity. If you choose the option to upload documents proving your identity you get lost in some time warp, they can't acknowledge that they've received your documents, the status of it, or any idea of how long it'll take (I submitted one on Saturday). Oh, and you can't go back and try again to get an ACA code, won't work. So you're basically screwed, you just have to "trust" whoever (Experian, the government????) that what you submitted is acceptable, they keep you totally effing clueless

Oh and more thing, the website isn't currently working correctly

They don't even give you clear answers about your credit report a lot of the time.

Sadly, they were able to make themselves an integral part of the financial system since they are one of the three who provides credit rating for people, even if many times they are riddled with mistakes.

12. Experian got a $78 million contract with the ACA

14 March 2012

Experian and Symantecís two-factor credentialing solution selected by Centers for Medicare & Medicaid Services

Experian and Symantec continue to gain traction in the public sector

Costa Mesa, Calif. and Mountain View, Calif. Ė Experianģ and Symantec Corp. (NASDAQ: SYMC) today announced that the two-factor credentialing solution jointly developed by the companies was selected by the Centers for Medicare & Medicaid Services (CMS) to provide Enterprise Remote Identity Proofing (ERIP) and Multi-Factor Authentication (MFA) Credential Services in support of the Affordable Health Care Act (ACA). The Experian and Symantec solution will play a critical role in a $78 million contract that was awarded to Science Applications International Corporation (SAIC) providing CMS with an offering that helps them solve key challenges that arise in serving the nationís large uninsured population.

The Experian and Symantec solution combines Experianís identity proofing capabilities with the strong authentication capabilities of Symantecís Validation and ID Protection (VIP) Service to deliver secure online identity credentials. It will minimize the risk of fraud by providing more than 35 million U.S. citizens with secure online access to the State and Federal Health Insurance Exchange, while complying with electronic authentication guidelines in the National Institute of Standards and Technology (NIST) Special Publication SP 800-63-1 and achieving Level 3 Assurance.

Wow, what an amazing post.

And your time is precious, so precious that you waste it ranting and railing about how the world is not perfect enough for you.

Of course, I am the guy who got so frustrated with an ipod that was given to me, that I took it back, rather than register it online. And I just deleted some free Family History software because I could not get the stupid thing to work without opening a browser window.

But the problems you face are systemic and not caused by "wealthy private interests".

I volunteered about ten hours of my time at the Speedway this weekend, to raise money for charities. The Speedway shows the problems involved in a mass event. Trying to serve all the potential customers is not an easy problem. And the roads are simply not designed to handle that much traffic, so leaving involves a lot of waiting in line. None of our systems are designed to handle everybody at once.

If you've chosen to upload documents to prove your identity you're stuck in a twilight zone, there's no way to get a reference number to give to Experian, you call them and they tell you they can't do anything without a reference number. They tell you to call healthcare.gov, with whom I had just gotten off the phone with (who told me to call - you guessed it - Experian). I'm great it's going well for some people but for many of us it's been a big headache

9. Your paranoia is likely going to cost you a lot of money.


The main reason that they are trying to verify your identity is to make sure that they have the right person so that they can calculate the subsidy.

We had the same issue (my wife has a typo on her green card) and the issue was settled in 20 seconds and 2 minutes later we got a $ 3600 subsidy.

You don't understand the system, they are verifying identity so that they can make instant decisions on subsidies.

48. Yeh, I'm paranoid, thanks for that.

It's not paranoia. I do understand the system. I understand it all too well. It's the principle here. I'm quite sure I can get a gold or platinum policy if I choose to.

I elect the government, not wealthy private interests. It is the governments job to verify my identity. The IRS could do it easily. The Social Security Administration could do it easily.

You are missing the point. I have no problem dealing with government agencies.

I don't want government agencies forcing me to communicate with, or engage with, wealthy private interests.

I'm a liberal, and I am sick of privatization, and I'm pissed. I should not be forced by a government program into using private agencies whose services I do not need or want. If I should decide on a policy on the exchange, then I am choosing to engage with a private business entity, and I have a choice to divulge my information or not at that time.

And credit reporting agencies should be outlawed, IMO.

I am still a big fan of the ACA, But this is wrong. I should not have to be forced to submit and bow to a fucking private credit agency just that I despise so they can verify who I am.

69. Your completely irrational on the point

You have a deep seated hatred of credit reporting agencies:



And credit reporting agencies should be outlawed, IMO.




These identity consults with Experian:

a) have absolutely nothing to do with credit checks whatsoever.

b) only occur when the various data bases that are available to the government show ambiguity.

We know why in our case. The federal government, namely CIS, added the letter t into her name on her green card. It is going to cost us $ 450 to get it fixed. When this was explained on the chat they referred it to Experian who then confirmed that the government had made the typo and that there was 10 years of records with the right name.

c) in order to give an instant response on the subsidy they need to have some service that can give instant real time responses by a human reading data that can manage a decision when data bases don't match.
There are no government agencies that have that kind of manpower available to provide that kind of service, and if they did they would be shut down right now. Social security offices are running like mad men every minute they are there and cannot handle the phone calls they now get.

10. I think you're missing the point...

...you're doing an online transaction involving potentially thousands of dollars in obligated payments. The goal of the Experian check is, in fact to prove that you're you...and not me pretending to be you. All they're doing is having you confirm data that they have and you would know but I wouldn't.

But, if you'd like to vent some more, please continue.

and is being forced to deal with them because of the way the identity check is set up.

I predict that there will be many similar complaints in coming months because many people dislike and distrust credit bureaus.

Every time I get the validation email and click the link (sometimes 24 hours AFTER I request it), and answer the challege questions, I get an error message that says my account doesn't exist and I answered the questions wrong. Well, how do they know I answered the questions wrong if my account - that they just sent a validation email for - doesn't exist?

And this is the 3rd email/username I've tried to set up. None of them will let me in, but if I try to 'set up new account' using that same email and/or username, I get ANOTHER error saying "an account with that ( ) already exists."


It is a fucking mess.

16. This isn't like buying a book from Amazon.com

That this process is a little more complicated and takes a while longer than buying a book online is no reason to damn the whole thing.

First, on Day One there were anywhere from 3-5 million people trying to log on to sign up for insurance before lunch.

I'm sure that along with the high traffic, some rw'ers were attacking the site so that it wouldn't work and they could then wag their finger.

"But they had 3 years to get ready" Up until the day it rolled out there was a threat from Congress to shutdown, repeal, de-fund, destroy....

This process is a complicated one, patience is required. This isn't going to be as easy as buying something from Amazon using One Click checkout.

I would close out THAT account with the bank and open a new one, either with that bank or another.

But, dude, IF you gave Experion authorization to withdraw out of your account then the bank had no recourse but to do as YOU asked.

As for the rest of your screed ... you have already been given some good advice above.

in their data base to verify identity.

The last time I requested my credit report (free at annualcreditreport.com) Experian asked me some very strange questions to which I answered "none of the above." They then said I needed to call to verify my identity.

I was a little worried about identity theft until I checked my last report from Experian and noted that they had very little information about me. I never called them.

You gave them your credit card number. Because that's how they charged you the fee. Did it ever occur to you to wonder why they needed a credit card number? Did it occur to you to very carefully read over the page where they requested the credit card information so that you were not agreeing to be charged in the future?

It's because I always know exactly what I am doing with my hard earned money.

Which is why you've been charged $16.99 twice and don't know why.

77. You don't seem be capable of comprehending something here.

This popped up on my bank statement out of the blue 2 years ago. I called the bank, they gave me my money back. I asked them to prosecute Experian for identity theft. They did not. Later, the charge popped up on my bank statement again. I called the bank, and they gave me my money back. I asked them to prosecute Experian for identity theft. They did not. I asked for explanations. I got no responses. I did not pursue it any farther, because I do not want private profit interests taking up my precious time with their greed motivated nefarious bullshit.

I haven't signed anything with this bank in 7 years, other than deposit slips, and an agreement for a safety deposit box 5 years ago. I don't use credit cards. I don't buy anything on credit. Ever.

I know that this is hard for you to comprehend. I simply don't live the Average Consumer American life, and I never have.

What do I want? No, i don't want a cookie. Corporations send me lots of those over the internet, cookies I did not not ask for, and don't want.

What I want is for pompous assholes who think they know everything to stop spewing their ignorant, arrogant, condescending bullshit regarding my affairs, about which they know absolutely nothing.

Just deal with it and fix it.

have a nice day

32. had a problem with them

I was being charged for the reporting service when I never signed up for it. Called them and it sounded like a really mickey mouse operation - wouldn't let me speak to the supervisor, etc. I then asked for the full names of the supervisor, their mailing address etc. for my complaint to the state attorney general's office. All charges were removed.

As far as identifying you, I think those are protections for you.

35. I pay the government to protect me. I want the government to protect me. I do not want wealthy

interests knowing anything about me. I do not want to talk to them. I should not be forced to talk to them.

Ever.

Period.

Fuck all this this privatization crap.

40. While I disagree with your complaints about Experian,

I do understand your distaste of privatization and I agree with it. Unfortunately, single-payer is not the system we currently have.

However, please rest assured that the problem is not with Experian, most likely. It's probably either a credit card issue (someone not doing their job) or you might want to check to see if you've been phished/exposed/frauded and call your state's attorney.

53. EXPERION has had Problems...Here:

Your work experience with the company may be a good one...but, there have been problems with them and other credit reporting agencies:

-----------
Credit Bureaus Stand Btween Americans and New Health Care Exchanges

But Experianís telephone operators, just like those who work at Equifax or Trans Union, donít have a great reputation with consumers. Complaints from those rejected by AnnualCreditReport.com are plentiful. Earlier this year, the Federal Trade Commission issued a report saying as many as 42 million Americans had an error in their credit reports. Back in 2000, after a federal law required the bureaus to make it easier to call and get errors fixed, a crush of telephone busy signals and accusations of inadequate staffing led to the three bureaus paying a $2.5 million settlement to the FTC. Experian paid $1 million and agreed to increase call center efficiency. And in July, a jury awarded an Oregon consumer $18 million for getting the run-around from Equifax.

honesty and integrity, especially after they deliberately tried to rip me off twice.

52. Disliking a company you have had bad exprience in the past with is embarassing?

There are many people who have been put through the wringer by the likes of Experian, they have a great deal of power over the individual and they are far too casual about how they wield that power.

"There are many people who have been put through the wringer by the likes of Experian, they have a great deal of power over the individual and they are far too casual about how they wield that power. "

...including me. I hate them. What's embarrassing is confusing hate for the company with the role being performed and your responsiblity:

"It's not my job to verify my identity. I know exactly who I am."

70. Experian is always my lowest score, so I'm not too fond of them... But really?

It's a good that you're cautious about who you give personal information to.

I avoid giving my info out and challenge businesses that ask for it... But there are at least four unavoidable organizations in your life that you have no choice but to give that info to: the US government (IRS, SS, FAFSA, etc.), your employer, your doctors, and your insurer. And if you choose to install utilities, buy a home and/or cars, you'll have to provide that info to even more companies.

71. This thread makes me really sad for the future. I feel really sorry for my grandchildren.

And the saddest thing is, so many of the posters on this thread have no idea whatsoever about what I am referring to.





BTW, I support the ACA, despite it's many flaws, it's going to help a lot of people. This OP was not meant as a cut on the ACA, but only on the government forcing me to grovel for acceptance from known crooks, crooks that I despise, in order to get my insurance from a government mandated program.

79. There is not one single government program that you do not have the verify who you are. Those of us

who have been on any kind of assistance from energy assistance to social security can attest to that. Sometimes you have to do it over again because you moved to another county or another state. If you last sentence is correct then many of us have never been in a democracy.
