Insurance & Other Protections

Blue Flame Credit Union is a full-service financial institution offering insurance and payment protection products to protect you, your credit, and your assets.

Borrower Security Debt Protection

An unexpected disability, death or even an involuntary period of unemployment can affect your household's income level, making your financial obligations very difficult to meet and significantly impact your family's standard of living. Struggling to make loan payments on a reduced or lost income is a heavy burden that your family should not have to bear, especially when coping with the emotional and physical stress of a disability, death or loss of employment. Blue Flame Credit Union offers MEMBER'S CHOICE™ Borrower Security Debt Protection as a convenient and affordable way to keep your loan repayment on schedule.

  • Disability - In the event of member becoming disabled, the loan payment will be cancelled up to contract maximums during qualified disability period.

  • Loss of Life - Protected loan balance is cancelled up to $50,000 per loan ($100,000 for Home Equity) in case of member's death

  • Involuntary Unemployment - In the event of member becoming involuntarily unemployed, the loan payment will be cancelled up to contract maximums during the eligible period of unemployment

There are no upfront charges and the cost is added to your loan on a monthly basis. MEMBER'S CHOICE™ Borrower Security Debt Protection will cancel or waive your eligible loan payments. Debt Protection products are available for both new loans and current loans with Blue Flame Credit Union. When applying for a new loan with BFCU you will be offered the option to choose from several Debt Protection packages. Additionally, Debt Protection options are available for existing BFCU loans. Please contact a BFCU loan officer if you wish to add Debt Protection to any of your loans.

Your purchase of Debt Protection is optional and will not affect your application for credit or the terms of any credit agreement required to obtain a loan. You may cancel this protection at any time. Certain eligibility requirements, conditions and exclusions may apply.
