You’re covered with Life Protection

Life Protection is included with all our loans and covers you up to the age of 70. This does not cost you anything, it is simply another benefit of borrowing from the Credit Union and has been created purely to help our members.

Loans are protected up to a maximum of £40,000 per member. This means your loan would be cleared, ensuring your debt does not remain outstanding, subject to our terms and conditions.

All benefits are paid at the discretion of our Board of Directors. Life Protection is not an insurance policy and is not guaranteed. For more information please click here.
