With Debt Protection Jerilyn Can Focus on Healing

After a car accident, Jerilyn needed surgery and was off from work for three months. Money was tight—after paying monthly living expenses, Jerilyn didn’t have enough to make her car loan payments. Fortunately, she had Debt Protection on her vehicle loans. “That made a huge difference in how those months were handled.” With the help of Debt Protection, Jerilyn could concentrate on healing. “It’s really about getting strong and healthy again, so I can get back to a normal life and do the things that I want to do.”

Debt Protection Was Helen’s Salvation

Helen was responsible. She had a great job and was working hard to protect her financial future, but all of that changed when she suffered a stroke and lost her job. Thankfully, Helen protected her auto loans with debt protection through her credit union and CUNA Mutual Group. “Debt protection was my safety net. If I didn’t have that debt protection, then I’d have to decide…what’s more important—a car to find a job, or a place to live? It [debt protection] was a salvation at a time when I needed it.”
