Why You Need A Credit Protection Plan
You should have a credit protection plan which will alleviate your family’s financial burden if you are diagnosed with either a terminal illness, critical illness, loss of income, temporary or permanent disability, or in the event of death.
The plan covers your monthly installment for a limited time if you become temporarily disabled or are unable to earn income.
You can make multiple claims for temporary disability and loss of income.
The outstanding balance on your personal loan is paid in the event of permanent disability, terminal illness, or death.
Plan A covers all the five events of misfortune, whereas plan B does not cover loss of income.
