  • Securian Financial was one of the first providers to offer consumer debt protection programs, and we continue to pioneer new applications for this flexible protection.

    We’re committed to collaborating with your credit union to design and implement successful programs. And we’re one of few providers who will work with to you structure complete, combination (paired with an already successful credit insurance product) or a la carte (adding ancillary protection) programs.

    We offer a selection of debt protection programs for all of your lending portfolios:

    • ConsumerSafe Debt Protection for personal and consumer loans.
    • ConsumerSafe Plus Debt Protection for personal, consumer and home equity loans.
    • EquitySafe Debt Protection for home equity loans and HELOCs.
    • HomeSafe Debt Protection for first mortgage loans.

  • Debt Protection Auto Expense provides credit union members with additional security in the event of a major unexpected auto expense. The auto insurance deductible benefit cancels one loan payment up to $500 in the event of an accident where a deductible payment is made. This coverage allows the borrower to use dollars that would have been used for a loan payment instead for the auto expense, keeping a loan current in a circumstance where there might otherwise be an issue. In addition, the solution also generates revenue for the credit union. The coverage is available for both new and used automobiles.
