One of the attractions of a loan with the Termonfeckin Credit Union is free Loan Protection Insurance. It repays the balance of the loan in the event of a member’s death. Cover is available for those in good health or carrying out normal occupational duties and who have not reached their 80th birthday at the time the loan is granted.
What is Loan Protection Insurance?
In Termonfeckin Credit Union, the outstanding loan balances of eligible members are insured at no direct cost to the member. Should a member with an outstanding loan balance die, the balance is repaid in full, subject to terms and conditions and certain cover limits which apply. You should enquire when making your loan application to see if you are eligible.
If you are an eligible member, this means that you can borrow from your credit union in the full confidence that your dependents will not be obliged to repay the outstanding loan balance in the event of your death.
The outstanding loan of a member who suffers total and permanent disability for any occupation before his/her 55th birthday is also repaid.
- The insurance benefit payable is the amount of the member’s outstanding loan balance
- Cover ceases on the member’s 80th birthday
- The cover extends to include total and permanent disability from any occupation. In the event of the member becoming totally and permanently disabled for any occupation then the benefit will be paid
- The total and permanent disability must be medically determined
- The total and permanent disability must commence before the 55th birthday
Life Savings Insurance is the life insurance cover provided to Termonfeckin Credit Union members as member benefit i.e. at no direct cost to you and as an incentive to save regularly. Life Savings Insurance is payable on the death of the eligible member, subject to policy terms and conditions.
The amount of insurance benefit to which a member is entitled is in proportion to the amount of savings the member has made during the term of membership, and depends on the member’s age at date of lodgement. See below:
Amounts saved after the 70th birthday are not insured. However, cover built up before the 70th birthday remains in force after the 70th birthday as long as the savings are left in the credit union (cover limited to €12,700). Withdrawals may affect the amount of insurance payable in the event of a claim.
Under Credit Union Rule 22 (now amended to Rule 19) if your account becomes inactive for 3 years and we are unable to contact you within that period it may become a dormant account. It is in your own interest to keep it active by conducting regular transaction.
The account maybe reactivated by conducting transactions and supporting it with photographic I.D. e.g. passport/drivers licence/birth certificate for children and confirmation of address (not more than 3 months old) e.g. utility bill/revenue documentation.
