Credit Insurance and Debt Cancellation are evolving products. So a “set and forget” strategy is no good for anyone. Like everything else you manage, it demands regular evaluations to answer three questions:
- Is the product or service addressing the stated need?
- Is it embraced by staff and offered consistently?
- Are there new options available to improve service or optimize results?

For Your Consideration
Each provider or insurer listed above can help you offer payment protection to your account holders. Which is the best for you? We can’t answer that. However, we work with Frost Financial & Cherry Creek Financial Services. The latter also is led by a Joe, so we’re fans. Both companies are our top choices, but they may not be yours. And that’s ok!
To be empowered with the right questions to ask both the provider and your team, check our library of Payment Protection resources.
Real People. Real Results.
Choosing your provider is just one step in the process. Remember, while these products can help you boost non-interest income, their primary goal is to help people avoid challenging financial situations.
We work closely with lenders at dozens of financial institutions. As a result, we understand some of your challenges and goals. More than likely, you already have some sort of Payment Protection offering.
If so, we help you determine if it is best serving all parties. If not, let’s discuss if credit insurance or debt cancellation is a fit for your institution.
Simply schedule an informal chat. You pick the time. Right on the site. We’ll reach out to make sure we are all on the same page. Then we chat. Guess due diligence isn’t the only thing we’re making easy! (I crack myself up.)
