Life Savings Insurance
Life Savings Insurance is the life insurance cover the Credit Union provides for its eligible members as an additional incentive for them to save regularly. The amount of insurance benefit to which a member is entitled is in proportion to the mount of savings the member has, and depends on the members age at date of lodgement.
Loan Protection Insurance
Loan Protection Insurance is the insurance cover the Credit Union provides on the lives of its borrowing members.
You will be informed at the time of the loan application if your loan exceeds the amount covered by the credit unions policy. Under the basic policy death cover ceases on the members 70th birthday. The credit union has the option of extending this age limit to the members 80th birthday by affecting cover under the Over 70 Rider. Disability cover however ceases on the eligible members 60th birthday.
Death Benefit Insurance
All eligible members of the Credit Union can apply for insurance covered under our Death Benefit Insurance Policy. This means in the event of your death, a lump sum of £2,000 will be paid to your family to help with the cost of funeral expenses, thereby easing the financial burden of bereavement. The annual premium for the insurance is £15 per year.
Nobody enjoys talking or even thinking about their own mortality. However the simple fact is funerals are now extremely expensive and very few people realise the impact funeral bills will have on their lives.
