Your diploma may come with high student loan debts. The effects of a disability early on in your career — when student loan balances are at their highest — could have long-lasting consequences. Unlike other kinds of debt, under current law, federal student loan debt cannot be discharged during bankruptcy. So it makes sense to safeguard your ability to continue loan payments during a period of disability.
A Student Loan Protection Rider reimburses you for student loan payments — no matter how many you have, or how many institutions they’re with.
A Student Loan Protection Rider lets you:
- Obtain additional coverage — up to $2,500/month 1. — above what you might otherwise qualify for, based on your income
- Tailor coverage to your specific debt — reimburses $250-$2,500 per month toward student loan payments 2.
- Choose a rider duration — 10 or 15 years 2. Adding this option is easy. No loan documentation is required at the time you buy your policy and/or this rider.
