Are you eligible to make a claim under your LoanSure Insurance Policy?
Consumer Credit Insurance – often referred to as Loan Protection Insurance or LoanSure provides cover in the event you are unable to meet your minimum loan or other credit repayments due to unemployment, sickness or injury (under the terms of the policy) – or to pay the outstanding loan balance upon death.
A recent review identified that you may have experienced a period of financial hardship on your credit facility while a LoanSure policy was in place - and no claim was initiated under that policy.
Do I need to do anything?
We encourage you to discuss your eligibility to initiate a claim under your policy by contacting CGU Insurance, Monday to Friday between 8.30am and 5.00pm AEST/AEDT (select option 1 – claims). Please give some consideration to the supporting information that may be required for a claim.
Depending on the type of cover held, your policy could provide the following cover:
Assists in meeting your minimum loan repayments in the event your employment is involuntarily terminated.
Helps meet your minimum loan repayments in the event you cannot work due to illness or injury.
In the event of your death, a lump sum payment can pay the outstanding balance of your insured loan.
