“Peace of mind” protection

Credit Life insurance provides benefits to help pay off your loan should you die before completing your payments. Single or joint insurance is available to help protect your family against the financial burden of paying off your loan after your death.
Credit insurance benefits are payable up to the maximum benefit amount which will be shown on the policy or Certificate of Insurance you will receive when your coverage becomes effective.

Important coverage for you…and your loved ones. While you may have some life or disability insurance, there’s a good chance that the effects of inflation may have made your existing coverage inadequate. U.S. Consumer Price Index statistics show that in the last 10 years, the purchasing power of your dollar has declined by nearly 50%. And inflation has had the same effect on each dollar of insurance you have.
What’s more, your changing needs and increased financial obligations have a tremendous effect on the need for additional coverage to protect the financial security you’ve planned for yourself and your family.
Credit Disability and Credit Life Insurance provide the kind of coverage needed to help protect your family from having to meet one of your important obligation – your loan – should you become disabled or die before completing payments.
