Credit Protection for Credit Cards

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

  • Your Scotiabank credit card can give you convenient access to credit for your everyday purchases and expenses. Did you know, however, that in the event of your death or the diagnosis of a covered critical illness, this convenience could become your family's financial obligation?

    How does it work? 

    Credit Protection can remove those worries. It will pay off your outstanding Scotiabank credit card balance, relieving your loved ones of added financial pressure at a difficult time. You can enrol for Credit Protection which can pay the outstanding loan balance on your credit card account in the event of your death or enrol for both Credit Life and Critical Illness. Critical Illness Protection is a living benefit, which means that the outstanding loan balance on your credit card account can be paid 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 now or perhaps it is time to consider joint coverage if you have a secondary cardholder on your account 

    You're Already Approved!

    As a Scotiabank credit card customer, it's easy to take advantage of this important offer of protection. You are already approved for coverage provided that you (and your secondary cardholder if you choose) are less than age 70 on the date you enrol for Life Protection or less than age 60 if you decide to enrol for both Life and Critical Illness Protection. No health questions are asked!
