Balance protection insurance
In the event of a sudden illness, accident or unemployment, the payment of an outstanding credit card balance may become an additional burden.
Balance Protection Insurance covers your payment obligations within the insurance terms and conditions, so that you are not financially restricted in sudden emergency situations, e.g. invalidity or unemployment. It covers the insured credit card balance up to the following maximum coverage:
- In the event of accidental death the remaining debt is insured
up to CHF 200,000
- In the event of permanent full invalidity up to CHF 100,000
- In the event of temporary full invalidity up to CHF 10,000
- In the event of compulsory unemployment up to CHF 10,000
The monthly premium is 0.5% of the principal card's outstanding statement balance plus any additional cards allocated and is charged directly to the credit card account.Example: with a monthly balance of CHF 1,000 the premium is CHF 5.
