In partnership with Resilient, Ascendus is pleased to provide all our new borrowers with a group term life insurance and accidental death & dismemberment (AD&D) insurance policy when you take out a loan with us. In return for being a customer and repaying your loan on time each month you will maintain a $50,000 Life Insurance policy with a $50,000 AD&D rider. You will not have to pay to receive the benefits of the policy as Ascendus will bear the cost of all the insurance premium payments.

Inclusive Insurance

Insurance is complicated enough and we don’t believe in making things more complicated than they need to be. So, we’ve kept things simple: all you have to do is create an account on our website and pay your monthly balance on time each month to keep your coverage active. If you pay on time, you will be covered for the following month. For example, if you make your first payment in January, your first month of coverage will begin in February, when you make your payment in February, you will be covered for March - and so on. Really that’s it.

Inclusive insurance from Resilient & Ascendus : Where planning for your financial future just got that much easier

How it works

  1. Sign up for an account within 30 days of closing your loan (don’t forget you can sign up as soon as you apply too!)
  2. Make your first payment in month 1, insurance is active now in month 2
  3. Name your beneficiary (the person or people you would like to receive the money). We will also offer you the option of automatically notifying them that the policy exists if you wish to do so.
  4. Continue making on-time payments and keep your coverage

A message from Paul Quintero, CEO of Ascendus

“At Ascendus, we believe in creating a world of financial ascension for all. For us, this means maximizing your FICO credit score by reporting timely monthly repayments so you can access more credit in the future to grow your business, purchase a home, or borrow for higher education. It also means protecting your family from the adverse monetary impact of an unexpected death or accident to the primary breadwinner—YOU! Life insurance offers a safety net that protects the income and wealth of your family. Sadly, we all know the pandemic disproportionately impacted communities of color across the globe. This reality inspired us to partner with Resilient to provide a simple, life insurance benefit - where 100% of the cost is paid by us - that accrues only to you or your designated beneficiaries for simply doing what you already planned to—repaying your Ascendus loan on time each month. Growing credit and protecting wealth are two concrete ways of creating financial ascension for all.”
