Insurance Tips

August 2013


SECU is pleased to provide access to a comprehensive and competitive line of insurance products to meet member needs. We encourage members to shop and compare, and consider the Credit Union a trusted source for comparison. SECU insurance products include:

Life Insurance options include both term and whole life. Term life provides affordable protection for level coverage amounts from $25,000 to $1,000,000 or more with a fixed premium at guaranteed rates for the 10, 15, 20 or 30-year term period selected. Whole life builds cash value while providing coverage for an insured’s lifetime with face amounts of $10,000 or more available with a level premium at a guaranteed rate.

Auto, Homeowners & Other Personal Lines of Insurance involves property and liability coverage for autos, homes, recreational vehicles, motorcycles, boats, manufactured housing, renters and also coverage for flood, wind and hail, and umbrella excess liability exposures.

Individual Health & Dental Insurance includes options for a high deductible health plan to pair with a tax-advantaged Health Savings Account, offering an alternative for more affordable health insurance.

Long Term Care Insurance helps preserve personal assets and income from the high cost of long term care, provides options to choose the level of care desired, and enables one to remain independent from the support of others with some peace of mind regarding future care needs.

Medicare Supplement & Prescription Drug Plans for Seniors include several options to fit many needs and budgets for additional insurance to help cover many of the out of pocket costs not typically paid by Medicare.

Credit Life/Credit Disability Insurance is optional upon loan origination for added loan protection on SECU personal loans, vehicle loans and home equity loans under a group policy with a monthly renewable premium.

For more information contact your local branch, visit www.ncsecu.org or call the SECU Contact Center toll-free at 1-888-732-8562 or locally in Raleigh at 919-857-2150.

SECU insurance agents are licensed to sell insurance in North Carolina only and are compensated by employee salary, not by sales incentive pay. SECU receives commissions from the sale of insurance products as a source of non-interest related income for membership benefit.
