Credit Protection for Credit Cards

Right for you if:

  • You want Credit Protection on your Scotiabank credit card balance

Your Scotiabank credit card can give you convenient access to credit for your everyday purchases and expenses. However, in the event of your death, this convenience could become your family's financial obligation. Credit Protection can remove these worries.


Credit Life Protection can pay off the outstanding loan balance on your credit card account in the event of your death, removing these worries from your loved ones.
