Amalgamated Bank Credit Protector is an optional program offered by Amalgamated Bank of Chicago ("Bank") to eligible cardmembers. Whether or not you purchases Amalgamated Bank Credit Protector will not affect your application for credit or the terms of any existing credit agreement you have with the Bank.

In the case of hospitalization, involuntary unemployment, union sanctioned strike or disability where you are unable to work, benefits include cancellation of the minimum payment for up to 12 months per occurrence in an amount equal to 2.5% of your outstanding balance up to a maximum of $500 per month. In the case of your death, benefits include cancellation of the outstanding debt amount as of the date of death. Benefits are limited to your Amalgamated Bank Credit Card account ("Account") balance as of your date of involuntary unemployment, union sanctioned strike, disability, hospitalization or death up to a maximum of $10,000 per occurrence. You must be enrolled in Amalgamated Bank Credit Protector before your loss occurs. While receiving benefits, you will be unable to make any new charges or cash advances on your Account.

Upon enrollment, we will give you additional information, including an Addendum to your Amalgamated Bank Credit Card Cardmember Agreement that fully describes the program's features and benefits. Please read the Addendum carefully for a full explanation of terms, including eligibility requirements, conditions, and exclusions that could prevent you from receiving benefits and cancellation rights.

You may cancel your protection at any time. If you cancel within the first thirty days, any fees charged will be refunded. The Bank may cancel the Amalgamated Bank Credit Protector program at any time. The monthly fee for Amalgamated Bank Credit Protector is $.89 per $100 of outstanding balance.
