This screen automatically amortizes a loan according to the settings on the Loan Request screen, and will include up to 9 different payments (or terms), both with and without insurance premiums (or debt protection fees).
If you want to quote joint insurance or joint debt protection, make sure to fill in the Co-borrower's birthdate field at the top of the screen. In the Insurance Options box, SGL/SDP refers to Single Credit Life Insurance or Single Debt Protection coverage; JNT/JDP refers to Joint Credit Life Insurance or Joint Debt Protection coverage. See below for other hints related to quoting insurance/debt protection.
To select one of the payments and proceed to the Loan Recap screen, click the icon to the right of the payment amount.
To make the screen easier to read, click the highlight button in front of any line to apply shading to that line.
If Miscellaneous coverages exist appears at the top of the screen, Miscellaneous coverage has already been included with the loan and may be configured to be amortized into the loan. Click the Misc Coverages button to view the Miscellaneous Coverage and its configuration.
NOTE: The Insurance/Debt Protection Cost columns show the average cost per payment, per month, and per day for insurance premiums or debt protection fees. This is a simple analysis of the cost when the loan is created; it does not reflect changing premiums over time as the loan is paid down.
When reviewing this screen with your member, there is a handy tool that will calculate the difference between two of the quoted payment amounts, and will even break down the difference per day. Use this procedure:
Click the Compare Payments button
Click on the button next to a payment amount
Click on the button next to another payment amount
The following window will appear showing the difference between the two payments selected:
Click Continue (or press Enter) to return to the original screen. Repeat the steps again for a different set of payments as needed.
If insurance premiums (or debt protection fees) are not being quoted automatically, check the following:
Are codes entered into the “Insurance Options” fields in the box at the right edge of the screen? (Click the lookup button to choose from a list of your credit union's configured codes.) Make sure that the codes you choose are actually set up to offer that type of insurance!
Remember that defaults can be specified as part of the Loan Product Code configuration so that the system will calculate the costs automatically.
Has a co-borrower birthdate been specified? This can be done using the date field at the top of this screen (or on the previous Loan Request screen).
NOTE: The date entered here is used only when calculating the amortization schedule for the loan recap on this loan request. Once the loan is created, the system will use the actual birthdate from the additional signer's master membership or non-member record for premium posting and future amortization calculations.
Do the loan amount, term, and other settings fall within the eligibility requirements for this type of insurance?
Is the borrower (or co-borrower) eligible for insurance based on his/her age?
For single premium insurance codes, also be sure to specify the following settings:
Add to balance
If the insurance selected is single premium insurance, this flag should be checked, meaning that insurance premiums should be added to the balance of the loan.
Include in balloon
If this is a balloon loan, and the insurance you have selected is a single premium insurance type, this flag lets you choose whether the balloon amount should be included in the insurance coverage and therefore included in the premium calculation.
Your ability to offer this choice to your members will depend on your state regulations.
