Long-term unemployment in the United States has risen to its highest level since the Great Depression, as those who have lost jobs have found it difficult to find new ones.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.
