Here are some answers to members frequently asked questions:

Doesn’t my Workers Compensation (or ordinary employee disability insurance) cover my expenses?

Disability plans through the employer typically only pay a percentage of the gross monthly income and are designed to help cover the bare bone expenses. These work plans may not be sufficient to also help you make loan payments.

Won’t my sick leave through my employer take care of my expenses?

Many sick leave plans are for a limited period of time – often just 30 days. This means that credit disability insurance would begin just when you need it most.

What about my other life insurance coverage? Isn’t that enough?

You have made a sound financial decision to purchase insurance to replace your income and protect your family from specific risks. With this new debit obligation that you may not have previously planned for, Member's Choice Credit Life insurance is designed to pay your insured loan balance in the event of your death.

We have two incomes; isn’t that enough to carry us through an illness or injury?

Your family’s current standard of living is based on two incomes. If one income is reduced or stopped, what impact would that have on your standard of living? Could there be financial difficulties if one income is stopped or reduced? Member's Choice Credit Disability Insurance helps supplement your reduced or lost income.

I won’t get sick; why should I consider credit disability insurance?

It’s great to be healthy today, however we can’t predict the future. Have you ever considered or planned for what you would do in the event of an illness or injury that may prevent you from working for a period of time? It’s better have credit disability insurance on your loans and to have to use it versus not having coverage and wishing you had it.
