Credit Card Insurance

Credit card insurance is an insurance that a person can take on their credit card in the event that they are unable to pay off the debt owed on the card. There are many types of credit card insurance that exist to suit the needs and obligations of different kinds of people. These include life insurance, disability insurance, involuntary unemployment insurance and property insurance. Listed below are a few questions answered by the Experts on credit card insurance related issues.

What can a person do if they cannot pay the principal amount due on their credit card but has credit card insurance that makes minimum payments on a monthly basis?

If the credit card insurance is only making the minimum payment due, the person is likely to have a growing interest and liability on the principle amount. However, it is better to study the policy again for its terms and conditions. If the person has no assets to fall back on, they could consider filing bankruptcy to discharge the debt.

What would happen if a person who is 100% disabled does not pay the $10,000 that they owe in credit card debt after the credit card insurance period runs out?

Case details: Payments were waived for a two year period that has now expired. If the waiver period has come to an end, the person could first try and negotiate with the insurance company to check if they could further extend the time given for the repayment of the debt. If they cannot give the person more time, the person might have to face harassing phone calls from the credit card company wanting payment. The company could also try and sue the person in court. But if the person is on disability income that is generated from state and federal aid payments, that income cannot be garnished. When the suit is filed, the person can demand for an original copy of the credit agreement. If the company does not produce this, as is the case most of the time, the person may be able to get the suit dismissed on the basis that the contract is inadmissible.

If an employee misused a company credit card and then agreed to pay the amount back, can the employer file a police report through their credit card insurance?

In most cases, if the employee has permission to use the credit card, it is unlikely that the police will file a report against the person. The employer would need to take the matter to court as a civil case since the employee lawfully possessed the card. The employee may also want to consider returning the items they bought with the credit card to pay back some of the debt or sell what can’t be taken back and give all the money to the employer. Either way, the employee would need to reassure the employer that they will do all they can to return the money.

A person who lived in the State of Illinois used credit card insurance to make his monthly payments. Ten years later, they are being pursued for credit card debt. What would the statute of limitations be on this?

In the State of Illinois, the statute of limitations for an open account is 5 years. If the person has not made a payment in the past 5 years, the statute of limitations would have run out. The person would then need to write to the credit card company and ask for a copy of any payments made within the past 5 years. If there are none, the person can inform the company that the statute of limitations has expired and they will be reported for violating the Fair Debt Collections Practice Act if they continue with the harassment. Credit card insurance has many benefits.

While the questions above may have clarified some of your doubts on the issue, there may be others that you have that pertain to your case. These questions could range from anything as basic as how does credit card insurance work to understanding the different kinds of insurance available and how they may benefit your specific situation. Whatever your query, direct it to Experts who can offer professional insights and opinions at an affordable cost.

  • HI, My brother's ex has filed petition, court date 12/12/14.

    HI,
    My brother's ex has filed petition, court date 12/12/14. They have one child. petition asking for:
    1) dental (65%) this is in the original consent judgment from 2002...however, she absolutely refuses to provide him any documentation as to the treatment/bills, etc. Told him the amt verbally, and the rest was "none of his business." This will be resolved in court as she will have to satisfy request to justify the amt thru dental records, etc. So...ok with that.
    2) increase in ch support (ok with that...child will be 18 on Nov 9, senior in high school)
    3) pay half child's high school grad expenses in the spring. He's ok with this...however, he will ask for spending limit so she does not run up a bill without his consent and then stick him with half of a bunch of foolishness just to be spiteful.
    Next...This is NOT in the petition, however she sent him letter separately NOW asking for this money. Sylvan Learning Center from 2008. NOT in consent judgment that dad owes for any further education expenses for child. $4000 bill. Again, no prior consultation with dad before spending this money.
    Next...she wants half reimbursement for child's driver education from 2012. Again, not in consent judgment and not in the petition. Dad not included in these decisions as a parent for the child BEFORE the money is spent.
    I guess my main question is can the petitioner come into court and add stuff onto the petition like she's trying to do on the side? And if it's not in the consent judgment and he had no prior knowledge or consent of, will he have to pay it?
    Thanks!
