Credit protection for Credit Cards.
Safeguard your family from credit card debt.
Protect your family.
Your Scotiabank credit card can give you convenient access to credit for your everyday purchases and expenses. However, in the event of your death or the diagnosis of a covered critical illness, this convenience could become your family's financial obligation. Credit Protection can prevent this from happening.
You can enroll for Credit Life Protection which can pay off your outstanding Scotiabank credit card balance, in the event of your death, relieving your loved ones of added financial pressure at a difficult time.
Consider joint coverage if you have a secondary cardholder on your account.
Critical Illness Protection is a living benefit, which means that the outstanding balance on your credit card account can be paid off in the event you are diagnosed with a covered critical illness (specifically heart attack, cancer, or stroke).
If you already have Life Protection, you may want to add Critical Illness coverage or consider joint coverage if you have a secondary cardholder on your account.
*Critical illness only available with life protection.
