Credit Protection for ScotiaLine

  • Right for you if:
    You want coverage on your personal line of credit in the event of your death

    With your ScotiaLine Personal Line of Credit, you can live the lifestyle you choose. Did you know, however, that in the event of your death, this convenience could become a financial obligation for your family or estate?

    Credit Life Protection removes that worry. It will pay off your outstanding ScotiaLine balance thereby relieving your loved ones of added financial pressure at a very difficult time. If you already have coverage for yourself, now is the time to consider joint coverage at a discount if there is a second borrower on the account.

    You Are Already Approved!

    As a ScotiaLine customer, it’s easy to take advantage of this important protection. You are already approved for coverage provided that you (and your secondary account holder) are less than 65 years of age on the date you sign up. No health questions asked.

    Affordable monthly premiums for Credit Life Protection are based on your average daily outstanding balance during the previous billing period and your current age. The premium is based on the eldest borrower.
