CUNA Mutual Group announces alliance with D+H to introduce mortgage payment protection

Alliance Drives Consumer-Focused Innovation to Help Protect Credit Unions and Members

MADISON, WI (February 17, 2015) — CUNA Mutual Group will offer a new mortgage payment protection insurance product to credit unions and their members through an alliance with D+H via an integration with MortgagebotPOS , D+H’s consumer direct mortgage solution. The alliance will bring to life the credit union industry’s first, all-in-one, residential mortgage protection product to cover members in the event of unexpected job losses, death or disability – all within one, seamless user experience for application and enrollment.

“We’re excited to be working with D+H, a market leader in lending technology solutions,” said Chuck Cashman, vice president of business development and strategic alliances for CUNA Mutual Group. “This alliance means that credit unions will have a new critical service to offer their members. It also provides a strong competitive advantage for the credit union industry.”

Through the alliance, CUNA Mutual Group will integrate its new mortgage payment protection insurance product directly into MortgagebotPOS. This will allow credit unions to seamlessly provide quotes and enroll members in the new insurance offering. CUNA Mutual Group plans to launch the product later this year and will include complimentary loan officer training for the credit unions that leverage it.

Mortgage payment protection is a unique and voluntary insurance offering designed to cover mortgage payments during a critical period following the occurrence of a borrower’s death, disability, or involuntary unemployment.

“Just as today’s potential homeowners are concerned with their ability to secure a mortgage, they’re also concerned with their ability to keep their home,” said Alan Bahr, director of product management for CUNA Mutual Group. “It is important that we help credit unions ensure members can maintain the security of their families’ long-term financial health, including their home.”

“The alliance between D+H and CUNA Mutual Group will enhance our clients’ ability to help members protect one of their most valuable assets, their home,” said Scott Hansen, senior vice president of marketing, D+H. “We look forward to further supporting our credit union clients with the addition of this valuable new mortgage payment protection insurance service for their members.”

Currently, there are more than 6,500 credit unions and 100 million credit union members in the United States*. In 2015, CUNA Mutual Group’s mortgage payment protection product will be available to many of the nation’s credit unions that currently use the MortgagebotPOS market leading consumer direct solution for taking mortgage applications.

“This collaboration between D+H and CUNA Mutual Group clearly illustrates the unwavering and strong commitment of both companies to continue to invest in new and innovative ways to support credit unions for the future,” said Cashman.
