Payment Protection

You may not spend a lot of time worrying about what would happen to your finances if you lost your job, became disabled or lost a loved one. And that’s as it should be. Payment protection products help protect your financial security in the case of unexpected disaster, giving you one less thing to worry about.

With the recent recession and high unemployment, consumer concern about debt has been on the rise. Payment protection products from Assurant provide peace of mind to consumers with the knowledge that financial obligations will be taken care of in the case of involuntary job loss, disability or a death in the family. We offer a wide range of payment protection products and services for credit cards, mortgages and major purchases.

When a covered event occurs, your debt protection plan cancels or suspends your minimum monthly payment without penalty, additional interest or negative impact to your credit report. Covered events include involuntary unemployment, disability and the death of a policyholder. Assurant debt protection plans are offered by major retailers and financial institutions worldwide.


Assurant is serious about providing excellent customer care. Our service representatives strive to provide a fast, compassionate response to debt protection claims, with innovations that ensure your benefits are activated quickly and are available when you need them most.
