OTIS Federal Credit Union offers credit life, credit disability, vehicle service contracts, and GAP coverage in certain circumstances. The option of purchasing these products will be offered to every eligible member, and whether you choose to purchase these additional products or not is at your discretion.
Credit Life Insurance
You may purchase credit life insurance for most types of loans at OTIS. Credit life insurance provides insured borrowers with life insurance that pays off the balance of the loan in event of death.
Credit Disability Insurance
You may purchase credit disability insurance for most types of loans at OTIS. Credit disability insurance provides for the continued payment of the insured borrower’s loan in the event of total disability resulting from a covered accident or illness.
Vehicle Service Contract
You may purchase a vehicle service contract for qualifying collateral. VSCs pay for the cost of parts and labor during the repairs or replacement of major component parts when in conjunction with the repair of a covered item.
Guaranteed Auto Protection
You may purchase GAP coverage for qualifying loans. GAP helps to cover the difference between the primary insurance company settlement for the covered collateral and the loan balance at the date of loss. GAP may be financed with the loan.
