Credit Life and Disability Insurance
Insurance Coverage for Your Loans
At STAR Community Credit Union, we want to make sure you and your family are protected in the event of a life tragedy.
To help ensure that a life tragedy does not also become a financial tragedy for you and your family, we offer two types of payment protection:
- Credit Life Insurance reduces or pays off your eligible loan balance should you pass away before paying off your loan.
- Credit Disability Insurance makes your monthly loan payment should you become totally disabled due to a covered illness or injury. Payments continue until you return to work, the loan is repaid, or you reach the policy maximum.
If you have no disability or life insurance coverage or your current disability and life insurance coverage is inadequate, Credit Life and Disability Insurance may be valuable. They can also be a valuable addition to other insurance coverage—so consider whether your current insurance coverage will be enough to protect your credit in the event of an accident or tragedy. STAR Credit Life and Disability Insurance may be very important supplements to your current financial protection plan.
