Insurance of monthly payments to leave nothing to chance!
The unexpected is a part of life and it's important that you know what coverage you can have available for your needs. Although optional, monthly payment insurance is of capital importance, because it protects the borrower from possible upheavals such as incapacity for work following an illness or an accident and a case of unemployment for example. Your monthly credit payments are therefore taken care of according to the conditions of the contract.
What is the point of insuring your loan?
In the event of unemployment, if 70% of the last salary is legally insured, with a monthly income of CHF 5,000.- this represents a loss of CHF 1,500.- each month. However, the daily fixed costs remain unchanged! In the event of illness, the gaps can be in some cases more important and leave no margin to continue to honor the payment of its invoices or its monthly credit payments.
Did you know that from CHF 1.- per day, it is possible to maintain your salary no matter what?
To know precisely the amount of your unemployment benefits, you can always perform a simulation on the UNIA website.
