Life- At a time when your family has enough to worry about, the burden of worrying about repayment of a loan should not be added. Let Credit life insurance take that burden away by reducing or paying off your loan up to a maximum of $70,000 if you die.

Disability- Let Credit disability insurance help you avoid the stress of bills piling up when you become sick or injured and are unable to work. Use the disability coverage you may have at work to pay for your essential living expenses; and let Credit disability Insurance make your monthly loan payments up to a maximum of $850 per month if you become ill or disabled and are unable to work.
