Credit Card Payment Insurance


Up to 5 times the balance of your credit card

In the event of accidental death, depending on the selected plan your insurance could pay out an amount equivalent up to 5 times the balance1 of your credit card, up to the credit card limit, maximum of $50,000.

The balance of your credit card

In the event of death, accidental dismemberment or a diagnosis of critical illness (up to 3 illness, depending on the selected plan), your insurance will pay out an amount equivalent to the balance1 of your credit card, up to $25,000 depending on the selected plan.

Up to 20%2 of your balance, every month

The primary cardholder may also be covered in the event of disability or job loss. In these situations, up to 20%2 of the balance1 could be paid off each month, as long as the situation persists, allowing you to get back on your feet without having to worry about this financial obligation.

Not worried about losing your job?

Every individual has different concerns; for example, self-employed workers may not be worried about losing their job. That’s why National Bank Insurance offers credit card payment insurance solutions tailored to your needs.

Helping you celebrate your most memorable moments

Through its Distinction Plan, National Bank Insurance wants to celebrate your key life events by crediting your Mastercard—whether you are obtaining a university degree, getting married, welcoming a new child, buying a home, making your last mortgage payment or entering retirement.

Guaranteed acceptance

If you are age 18 or older and living in Canada, acceptance is guaranteed and no medical questions will be asked. This coverage can be added or removed at any time. For more information on payment insurance, consult the summary.

Am I entitled to benefits?

Although acceptance is guaranteed, we want to make sure that you are fully aware of the conditions that must be met for you to be able to receive benefits. For details of these conditions and applicable exclusions, read the distribution guide before signing up for credit card payment insurance.

You will then receive an insurance certificate which  will set out conditions, limitations and timelines for the coverage to take effect.

Note: You will not receive benefits if the situation was already present or known before you decided to take out insurance.

For example, you cannot take out insurance to cover job loss if you know that your company will shut down in two months, nor can you make a claim for a first diagnosis of cancer if you think you already have symptoms.

Feel free to contact our Customer Service Department if you have any doubts concerning your situation or to learn more about credit card payment insurance.
