The Credit Union Difference - Member Benefits

Loan Protection and Life Savings

Loan and Life Savings Protection are one of the core differentiators between Credit Unions and banks. It underpins the Credit Union and community ethos. This protection offers Credit Unions a unique selling point that the banks cannot compete with.

Loan Protection Insurance

Loan protection offers peace of mind to the member and is a major support to their families at the most difficult time. Loan Protection also, provides security for the credit union in the knowledge that the death of a valued member will not financially impact the repayment of the loan.

Life Savings Protection Insurance

Life Savings Protection provides members' families with great support at a time when it is needed most.
