Loan Insurance Requirements

Coverage for your collateral

Two-Way Contracts

We provide you with the money and you provide insurance! When you get a secured loan with Deseret First, you’re selecting a loan with collateral. So as a borrower, it is your responsibility to maintain insurance on that collateral. This is part of your loan agreement, and as a result, you will need to provide proof of coverage. This stipulation lasts for the entire life of the loan. If you need coverage, we are happy to refer you to our partner, Deseret Insurance Agency!

If you don’t buy your own insurance or provide proof of coverage as outlined in your loan agreement, we may buy Collateral Protection Insurance to protect the collateral. We will add the cost of this insurance to the loan and as a result, your loan payment may increase. The insurance Deseret First buys will generally be more expensive. In the case of auto loans, it does not provide the liability insurance required to legally operate a vehicle in most states. Our coverage protects the physical condition of the collateral only. With this in mind, we strongly urge you to buy your own insurance. If you don’t currently have insurance, we recommend our in-house agency! Deseret Insurance Agency can give you a free quote.
