Code of the District of Columbia

§ 26–1152.03. Restrictions on the financing of single-premium credit insurance.

A lender shall not sell any individual or group credit life, accident, health, or unemployment insurance product on a prepaid single premium basis in conjunction with a covered loan. Credit insurance sold by a lender on a basis other than a prepaid single premium shall be accompanied by a clear and conspicuous disclosure, provided at least 3 days before closing, stating that the credit insurance shall not be a condition to the extension of mortgage credit and that the borrower may elect not to purchase the insurance. Insurance premiums or debt cancellation or suspension fees calculated and paid on a monthly or bi-weekly basis shall not be considered financed by the lender; provided, that the disclosure required by this section shall be provided to the borrower for any insurance, debt cancellation, or suspension services purchased by the borrower.
