Debt Protection

Protect your loan. Help protect your credit.

Can your family cope financially if you become disabled, unemployed, or unexpectedly pass away? Is your family able to pay loans plus other household bills or commitments without your financial contribution?

An inadequate financial "safety net" can make bill and loan payments difficult to make, causing payments to become delinquent, potentially affecting your ability to acquire future credit.

Help Preserve Your Standard of Living

Whether you're making improvements to your home, buying a vehicle, or taking out a loan for other reasons, you may need to tap into additional financing. Certain life events can cause financial hardship, making paying your bills difficult. You don't want delinquent payments and defaulted loans to cause you to lose your assets or negatively impact your credit rating.

Counter-Balance Your Financial Risk with Debt Protection

Debt Protection is a voluntary, loan-payment protection product. Even with the best preparation, life events can still take you by surprise — impacting your financial well-being. Choose to protect your loan with debt protection and feel good that you're managing your finances even when an unexpected life event happens.

Protection That Pays

If a "protected" life event occurs, Debt Protection will cancel or reduce repayment of your loan debt — lessening your worries about paying loans and other bills during a time when other things may take priority. Simple eligibility requirements make enrollment fast and easy. Protected events include:

  • Disability
  • Death
  • Injury and illness
  • Involuntary unemployment
  • Disability and loss of life caused by acts of war
