At VyStar, we offer easy ways to help protect your family's financial future. One of these is the option to insure your VyStar Consumer Loans with Credit Life and/or Credit Disability coverage—up to $50,000 per loan amount. We conveniently add the premiums to the loan's principal outstanding balance.
Credit Life Insurance is designed to pay off an insured member's loan balance within the terms of the policy and up to the coverage maximum in the event of their death.
Credit Disability Insurance is designed to provide for the continued payment of an insured member's loan balance in case of total disability due to accident or illness up to the coverage maximum.
Open-end loans: The premium is calculated and added to the outstanding balance of your loan each month but the monthly payment is not increased. This may impact the period of time necessary to repay the loan balance.
Closed-end loans: The premium is calculated and added to the outstanding balance of your loan each month, but the anticipated total premium to be added to the loan is taken into consideration when the monthly loan payment is calculated.
