Life is unpredictable

A wide range of unexpected events could leave you and your family scrambling to pay your monthly bills. That’s why you must protect your family against these events to ensure loan payments can be made on time. That’s where TDECU Payment Protection comes in.

Under the TDECU Payment Protection Program, your loan balance or monthly payments may be canceled without penalty or added interest. You benefit from the peace of mind knowing you and your credit rating are protected — and, most importantly — your family is protected.
