Credit Card Balance Protection

Your Credit Union Credit Card provides you with a convenient way to pay for purchases, but what if you were unable to pay your balance or even your minimum monthly payment?

Every day, accidents and death leave cardholders and their loved ones with unplanned debt. If this were to happen to you, what would you do? Credit Card Balance Protection Insurance can help.

CUMIS offers comprehensive balance protection at an affordable price, based on the outstanding account balance on the statement billing date. The cost of this insurance is conveniently added to your credit card statement each month and if you do not have a balance, you do not pay.

Our Benefits – Your Peace of Mind


Life, Critical Illness and Accidental Dismemberment/Paraplegia

The amount of insurance benefit is equal to the account balance on the date of loss, subject to the maximum benefit payable (stated in the certificate). Coverage is available up to the maximum age stated in the certificate.

Disability, Strike Coverage, Involuntary Loss of Employment and Loss of Self-Employment

The amount of monthly benefit is equal to a percentage of the outstanding account balance on the statement billing date immediately preceding the date of disability, involuntary loss of employment, loss of self-employment or from the first day you go on strike. Coverage is available up to the maximum age stated in the certificate.

You will have a 30-day free look and can cancel your coverage at any time.
