Debt Protection

Help preserve your standard of living.

In February 2011, the number of long-term unemployed (those jobless for 27 weeks or more) was 6 million and accounted for 43.9 percent of the unemployed.1

Whether you're taking out a loan to make home improvements or buy a vehicle, it can be a financial gamble because things happen…life happens. You're betting you can pay back your loan and won't lose your job (due to no fault of your own), or become disabled (due to injury or illness), or pass away — leaving your family responsible for your loan balance.

Help play it safe.

MEMBER'S CHOICE™ Borrower Security* is a voluntary loan-payment protection product that helps you get relief from the financial burden of delinquency, default, or foreclosure if a protected life event unexpectedly happens to you. Simple eligibility requirements ease the enrollment process.

Ask about protecting your loan payments.

If a protected life event happens to you (and you're a protected borrower or co-borrower on the loan), Destinations Credit Union will cancel or reduce repayment of your loan debt. Help lessen your worries, and your family's worries, about paying loans during a time when your income may be reduced or lost and paying other household bills becomes challenging. Protected events include:

  • Loss of life, including those caused by acts of war
  • Disability, including those caused by acts of war
  • Involuntary unemployment

Call a Loan Officer at 410-663-2500 and ask about protecting your loans, today.

*MEMBER'S CHOICE™ Borrower Security is a debt protection product offered by Destinations Credit Union. Enrollment in this debt protection product is voluntary and not required to obtain a loan.
