Debt Protection

You may worry about unexpected, real-life events that could leave you scrambling to pay your monthly bills. LGE Community Credit Union’s Debt Protection can help relieve financial pressure in the event of death, disability, or involuntary unemployment. With LGE’s Debt Protection, your loan balance or your monthly loan payments will be cancelled without penalty or added interest. You benefit from the peace of mind knowing you and your credit rating are protected.

We’ve designed our Debt Protection program to fit the times we live in today. More than ever, we all worry about things that might happen tomorrow. Debt Protection provides an important sense of financial security – knowing your loan will not become a burden to you in times of hardship. Please consult with one of our representatives to discuss LGE’s Debt Protection program in more detail.

Definitions of Coverage 
Death – Give your family time to get back on their feet financially. The remaining loan balance (up to $75,000) is cancelled upon the death of the covered borrower.

Disability – Help avoid bills piling up as you try to regain your health and earning capacity. Use this benefit as a supplement to any disability coverage you may have at work (which usually only covers 60 percent of pay). The monthly payment (up to $1,000 per month) is cancelled for up to 12 payments with a maximum cancellation of $15,000 over the term of the loan.

Involuntary Unemployment – Ensure that one of your major monthly expenses will be taken care of as you search for new employment. After a 90-day waiting period, the monthly payment (up to $1,000) is cancelled for up to six payments with a maximum cancellation of $15,000 over the term of the loan.

Cancel any time
You may cancel Debt Protection at any time. If you do so within the first 30 days, we will refund any fees already paid.
