Get Answers to Your Banking Questions

Can I cancel the credit protection on my bank loan?

Generally, yes. You should be able to cancel the credit protection feature on your loan. However, you should read your account agreement for cancellation information, including to learn if there are any requirements or penalties associated with cancelling this feature. You can try contacting the bank if you have debt cancellation coverage, or the third-party insurer if you have credit insurance, to obtain this information.
