Loan Repayment Insurance

Life doesn’t always go to plan – illness, injury and involuntary job loss can impact your ability to meet your loan repayments. With Loan Repayment Insurance from CUA, you can help protect you and your family if you’re unable to work or if you pass away.

Loan Repayment Insurance will help provide peace of mind that your home loan, personal loan, or overdraft repayments can be taken care of if you can’t take care of them. It means you can focus on the important things in life, right when you need to.

Cover options:

  • Life Cover

    Pays the lesser of the outstanding loan balance (less any repayments overdue for more than two months) or $750,000 or the credit limit, if you pass away
  • Accident and Illness Cover (Disablement)

    Helps cover your loan repayments for up to 24 months if you’re unable to work (up to $150 for each daily equivalent of your repayment to a maximum of $108,000 in total for all claims)
  • Involuntary Unemployment Cover

    Helps cover your loan repayments for up to six months per claim if you involuntarily lose your job (up to $150 for each daily equivalent of your repayment to a maximum of $27,000 for any one claim)

Joint cover can be provided at a reduced premium for the second borrower.

Loan Repayment Insurance is optional when taking out a home loan, personal loan or overdraft. Before making a decision whether to purchase this cover, please read the Product Disclosure Statement (PDS).
