Group Credit Life

Credit Life insurance is a holistic solution that covers the borrower’s liability, in the event of death due to both accidental and non-accidental or natural causes. Credit life insurance is sold on a group or individual basis and, usually is purchased to cover loans of short and/or long duration. The face value of a credit life insurance policy decreases in proportion to the reduction in the loan amount until both equal zero.

Any amount in excess of the outstanding loan balance is paid out to his or her designated beneficiary.
