Prestige Community Credit Union partners with SWBC Life Insurance Company

SAN ANTONIO, TX (November 4, 2014) — To better serve its members, Prestige Community Credit Union has chosen SWBC Life Insurance Company to deliver its payment protection program funded by credit life/credit disability insurance. Credit life/credit disability insurance helps fill a gap in underinsured Americans by removing the burden of specific debt if something unexpected happens to the borrower or co-borrower.

“We believe our payment protection products provide a tremendous benefit to the borrower and the family,” says Joan Cleveland, President & CEO of SWBC Life Insurance Company. “It’s peace of mind knowing that their credit union is able to pay off their loan in the event of death, or that payments are being made on their behalf in the event of disability.”

“We have worked with SWBC with other financial products in the past, and we are excited to partner with SWBC in offering credit insurance to our members,” says Sammy Shanafelt, President & CEO of Prestige Community Credit Union.   “SWBC is a very well respected company within the credit union industry, and we know that our members will be very satisfied with their level of service.”

Members of Prestige are now eligible to get a quote and purchase credit life or credit disability insurance when applying for credit products. Prestige members will experience a truly seamless integration, designed to deliver superior service to their borrowers.
