When you’re approved for a loan with OCCU, you’ll have the option of adding Debt Protection on qualifying loans at any time.
Hopefully none of these events occur in your near future, but loss of life, a disability or job loss can happen at any time.
Reach out to us when a qualifying event makes it difficult to pay your loan. We’re here to help.
Depending on the event, we may be there for you and your loved ones for the entire loan or until you recover.

Protects unexpected unemployment
If you lose your job due to events outside your control, Debt Protection may cancel your payments for up to six months or $6,000 per occurrence.
Protects against disability
In the event of a disabling illness or injury that threatens your financial stability, your loan payment may be cancelled for up to 12 months or $12,000 per occurrence.
Safeguards in the event of death
If the loss of a loved one who opted for protection impacts your ability to make payments on a loan, you could have the entire balance of the loan cancelled up to the contract maximums.
Adds protection for life events
Life Plus adds protection for life events such as accidental dismemberment, terminal illness, hospitalization, family medical leave, or the loss of life of a non-protected dependent. Speak to an OCCU representative for details.
