Help preserve your standard of living. Whether you're taking out a loan to make home improvements or buy a vehicle, it can be a financial gamble because the unexpected can happen at anytime. You’re betting you won’t lose your job (through no fault of your own), or become disabled (due to injury or illness), or pass away, leaving your family responsible for your loan balance. Life events can cause financial hardship, making bill-paying difficult. You don't want delinquent payments and defaulted loans to cause you to lose your assets, negatively impact your credit rating, or cause financial distress for your family.
CFCU Safety Net* is a voluntary loan-payment protection product that helps you get relief from the financial burden of delinquency, default, or foreclosure if a protected life event unexpectedly occurs. And, simple eligibility requirements ease the enrollment process.
If your loan is protected and a life event happens to you, CFCU Safety Net* will cancel or reduce repayment of your loan debt - helping to lessen worries about paying loans during a time when your income may be reduced or lost and paying other household bills becomes challenging. Protected events include:
Life Plus adds protection for financially-stressful life events such as accidental dismemberment, terminal illness, hospitalization, family medical leave, and the loss of life of a non-protected dependent.
Because each member has different needs, we offer three different options for protection with CFCU Safety Net:
Chesterfield Federal Credit Union offers a variety of add-on products to help you protect your vehicle loan purchase. These products are offered at a tremendous discount from what you might find at the dealership and can be financed into your loan so there are no out-of-pocket expenses.
Typically, your vehicle value declines faster than your loan is paid off.

This superb protection is available for only $349.

This coverage can be used at any repair center in the country. Typically, the repair center is paid directly so you don't have to worry about reimbursements. There are no deductibles on any of our plans. Best of all, your coverage is transferable if you sell the car.
