Other "Bundled Protections" For Credit Cards

Next » « Previous


Larger credit card companies often offer bundled protection plans that cover payments, and sometimes interest and fees as well, during a period of time after a specific event. Some of the events for which benefits are provided are:

  • Involuntarily losing your job. Quitting is not a covered event.
  • If you become hospitalized.
  • If you leave work on a short-term leave or a longer leave such as under the Family And Medical Leave Act.
  • If you become permanently disabled (credit disability insurance) or die (credit life insurance.)

Benefits vary for different events. For example:

  • If you become hospitalized, your account may be put on hold and you may not have to make any payments at all for up to two or three months.
  • If you lose your job involuntarily, you may not have to make any payments for 12-18 months.

Like all credit insurance, bundled protections do not ask health questions. Still, there may be important requirements before you have coverage. For instance, there may be a requirement that you work a certain minimum number of hours prior to the date of your claim.
