DISCLOSURE STATEMENT AND OTHER IMPORTANT INFORMATION ABOUT THE OPTIONAL MBNA® CREDITWISE® INSURANCE PLAN
ENROLLMENT: You are eligible for enrollment in the optional MBNA CreditWise plan if you are at least 18 years of age and a Canadian resident. Only one cardholder per Account is eligible to enroll and will be insured for benefits. Your coverage begins on the date your application is approved and your Account is opened. Your certificate(s), which indicate(s) your effective date of coverage, will explain all benefits and terms of coverage including exclusions and limitations, and will be mailed to you upon enrollment. In the meantime, if you would like to retain this important information about the optional MBNA CreditWise plan, please print prior to completing your application. You have the option to cancel the MBNA CreditWise plan at any time. If you cancel this coverage within the first 30 days of receipt of the certificate, any premiums charged to your Account will be refunded. The maximum benefit will equal the insured indebtedness (excluding any past due amount or amounts over your credit limit) up to $30,000. Any monthly benefit will equal the total minimum payment due on your Account from your date of loss (a maximum of $500 for initial monthly benefit for loss of self-employment). The insurance coverage for this benefit may be less than: (i) your total indebtedness; and (ii) your total minimum payment due on your Account. If you have any questions regarding this insurance or wish to cancel this coverage, please call Assurant Solutions at 1.800.340.4717.
COST: $0.99 per $100 per month of the greater of your insured cycle-ending balance, average daily balance or balance subject to interest charge plus applicable taxes, to a maximum of $20,000. The cost for coverage will be charged to your Account.
Example: An account with a $1000 cycle-ending balance, a $800 average daily balance and a $800 balance subject to interest charges would incur a cost for coverage of $1000 x $0.99 per $100 = $9.90 plus applicable taxes.
