Debt Protection

Real Protection for Real-Life Events

Ease your loan payments, protect your family and safeguard your credit rating.

Life is unpredictable. Debt Protection, offered by San Diego Metropolitan Credit Union, helps relieve the financial stress and worry related to making loan payments when life takes an unexpected turn.

With Debt Protection, your consumer or home equity loan payments* will be cancelled without penalty, added interest, or being reported as delinquent to the credit bureau when one of the covered events occur:

Death - gives your family time to get back on its feet financially.

Disability - helps you avoid bills piling up as you try to regain your health and earning capacity. Use as a supplement to any disability coverage you may have at work (which usually only covers 60 percent of pay).

Involuntary Unemployment - gives you assurance during a difficult time that one of your major monthly expenses will be taken care of as you search for new employment.
