Payment Protection Insurance

Life can be wonderful. But it can also get complicated when unexpected things happen.

Payment Protection1 is a simple and budget-friendly way to protect your family and help ensure your credit cards, auto loans, or personal loan payments are maintained if you become unemployed, disabled, or pass away. This protection could cancel your loan balance or payments up to the contract maximums.

Life Plus is an optional add-on to Payment Protection, which adds additional protection for life events such as accidental dismemberment, terminal illness, hospitalization, family medical leave, and the loss of life of a non-protected dependent. Protect your loan balance or loan payments today so your family can worry a little bit less about tomorrow. Purchasing protection is voluntary and won’t affect your loan approval.
