WHAT IS CREDIT DISABILITY INSURANCE?
It’s a way to help cover you and your family. There’s no way anyone can prepare for a total disability due to injury or a medical-related illness, but you can take steps along the way to make sure your family is provided for if the unforeseen were to happen.MEMBER’S CHOICE's Credit Disability Insurance helps pay your loan when you and your family need it most.

HOW DOES IT WORK?
The premium is included in your monthly loan payment. If you have a balance on your loan at the time of a total disability, MEMBER’S CHOICE's Credit Disability Insurance can help. By taking a few simple steps while signing your loan paperwork, you’re helping take responsibility for your family’s financial future. Your loan officer can show you how. You won’t receive extra bills or statements; everything is included in your monthly payment. You can cancel within the first 30 days for a full refund. Or any time after that if you change your mind. If at any point you have questions, or if you need to file a claim, simply contact your credit union. Once you complete the loan documents, coverage begins for eligible borrowers.

WHY IS IT VALUABLE?
You and your family won’t have to make loan payments –MEMBER’S CHOICE's Credit Disability Insurance will help pay your loan while you’re totally disabled.* Regular disability insurance only covers a fraction of your salary and that’s if you qualify. This helps close the gap. It’s a safety net for your family so they don’t have to use savings while you’re totally disabled or medically ill.
