Help Preserve Your Standard of Living

Whether you are taking out a loan to make home improvements or buy a vehicle, you should take steps to protect you and your family in case something unforeseen happens. Life events can cause financial hardship, making bill-paying difficult. Payment protection could protect you and your family, by canceling your loan payment(s) or balance, up to the contract maximums, if a protected life event occurs.

Help play it safe

WESTconsin Credit Union’s Payment Protection is an optional loan-payment protection product that is designed to help you get relief from loan payments if a protected life event unexpectedly happens to you. Simple eligibility requirements help ease the sign-up process.

Protection that matters

If a protected life event happens to you and you have a protected loan, Payment Protection could cancel your loan payments, up to the contract maximums. This would help lessen worries for you and your family about paying loans during a time when income may be reduced or lost and paying other household bills becomes challenging. We offer three options designed to provide the peace of mind that comes with knowing your loan’s protected:

  • Life / Life Plus*
  • Disability
  • Involuntary unemployment
