Manage Your Borrowing

Payment Protection Insurance

This insurance meets your loan repayments for a specified period of time if you are forced out of work for more than 30 days as a result of accident, sickness or redundancy. The claim benefit is paid directly to the credit union to cover the loan repayment and it helps to protect the member’s credit rating. (Terms and Conditions apply). By covering the loan with Payment Protection Insurance, you can be free from the worry of repaying it if you were to suffer an illness, accident or become unemployed.

Am I eligible?

You are eligible for cover as long as the member meets the following criteria at the commencement date:

  • You applied and were accepted for this insurance.
  • You are 18 or over, and under 70 years old, during the term of the loan.

Financial Problems
If you are experiencing financial problems or you are having difficulties in regard to your loan repayments, please contact the credit union as soon as possible.

You will be guaranteed a sympathetic hearing. The worst thing that you can do is ignore the problem, as this could eventually lead to legal action being taken against you or affect future loan applications.

If for any reason you are going away or you are out of work please contact the credit union as soon as possible so that we can come to some mutually acceptable agreement. Once again the credit union would urge all members not to panic or ignore your financial problems.
