Helping credit unions and their members navigate uncertainty
In response to COVID-19, we supported credit union clients and their members through a number of initiatives. We extended loan protection coverage at no cost to more than 15,000 credit union members at over 100 credit unions across the country and returned more than $1.5 million in Auto premiums to all qualifying credit union clients. In addition, we provided specific risk management solutions to help credit unions manage the changing nature of risk throughout COVID-19.
Challenge: Unprecedented circumstances in business interruption
COVID-19 negatively impacted business, from large operations to small, independent storefronts. Physical distancing and government-issued lockdowns led to temporary business restrictions or closures, and changes to consumer preferences and behaviours will have longer term impacts especially in long-term care homes, restaurants and the hospitality industry.
