Credit Protection Plan
Help preserve your standard of living. Whether you’re taking out a loan to make home improvements or buy a vehicle, you should take steps to protect you and your family in case something unforeseen happens. You’re betting you can pay back your loan and you won’t lose your job (through no fault of your own), or become disabled (due to injury or illness), or even pass away – all of which could leave your family responsible for your loan balance. Life events can cause financial hardship, making bill-paying difficult. You don’t want delinquent payments and defaulted loans to impact your finances.
Help Play It Safe
Debt Protection from County Federal is a voluntary loan-payment protection product that is designed to help you get relief from loan payments if a protected life event unexpectedly happens to you. Simple eligibility requirements help ease the sign-up process.
Protection That Matters
If a protected life event happens to you (and you’re a protected borrower or co-borrower on the loan), Debt Protection will cancel or waive your loan payments, up to the contract maximums—helping to lessen your worries, and your family’s worries, about paying loans during a time when your income may be reduced or lost and paying other household bills becomes challenging. We offer a number of options you could protect yourself against. These events could include:
- Loss of life, including those caused by acts of war
- Disability, including those caused by acts of war
- Involuntary unemployment
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. Certain eligibility requirements, conditions, and exclusions may apply. Please contact your loan representative, or refer to the Member Agreement for a full explanation of the terms of Debt Protection. You may cancel the protection at any time. If you cancel protection within 30 days you will receive a full refund of any fee paid.

Guaranteed Asset Protection (GAP)*
GAP can help you cover the difference between what the insurance company pays out and what you still owe on your auto loan.
Your insurance carrier may determine that the cash value of your vehicle is less than the balance you owe on your loan. In the event of a total loss or theft, GAP may waive the difference between your outstanding loan balance and the actual cash value of your vehicle.
GAP may also cover up to $1,000 of the borrower's deductible if there is a "gap" after the primary insurance settlement is paid.
