Lending and payment calculations
TruStage's Payment Protection Solutions include debt protection, credit life and credit disability insurance. Two different calculations related to payment protection take place in credit union systems:
- At time of loan origination — payments, interest and other charges are calculated and forecasted for borrowers.
- Monthly — insurance premiums are calculated and posted to the borrower's loan balance.
To enable your systems to provide accurate and compliant calculations, we offer the programming specifications and software (or Calculation Engine) you will need to be successful.
