Payment protection
If you are a member that has current loans with SFPCU and opted for payment protection coverage that includes involuntary unemployment protection, please allow us to file a claim on your behalf. Each claim will be reviewed based on contractual language to determine eligibility.

We have many other non-loan related options and are ready to assist you during this uncertain time. Give us a call at 800.222.1391 and let us know how we can help you today.
