Member Rewards Card Benefits Disclosure

Cellular Telephone Protection

This disclosure describes the benefit in effect as of 6/22/2020. Benefit information in this disclosure replaces any prior benefit information you may have received. Please read and retain for your records. Your eligibility is determined by UVA Community Credit Union.

Cell phones have become an everyday necessity for the average person, which means if Your cell phone is damaged or stolen, getting it repaired or replaced is not optional.

Fortunately, Cellular Telephone Protection is available which provides coverage for damage to, theft of, or involuntary and accidental parting of Your cell phone. An involuntary and accidental parting is the unintended separation from Your cell phone when its location is known, but recovery is impractical to complete. This benefit is available if You are a valid cardholder of an eligible U.S. issued card enrolled in the Cellular Telephone Protection benefit and You charge Your monthly cellular wireless phone bills to Your eligible card for the billing cycle before the month in which the incident occurs. Eligible cell phones are the lines listed on Your most recent cellular wireless service provider’s (“cell phone provider”) monthly billing statement for the billing cycle prior to when the incident occurred.

What is covered?

This benefit is supplemental coverage, which means that it will reimburse You for theft of, damage to or involuntary and accidental parting of Your cell phone not otherwise covered by another insurance policy (for example; cell phone insurance programs, or Your homeowner’s, renter’s, automobile, or employer’s insurance policies).

If You do have personal insurance that covers theft, damage or involuntary and accidental parting for Your cell phone, this benefit reimburses You for the deductible portion of Your cell phone insurance.

If You do not have personal insurance, the benefit reimburses You for the covered theft, damage, or involuntary and accidental parting for Your cell phone. Once all other insurance has been exhausted, Cellular Telephone Protection will provide coverage up to $500.00 per claim with a maximum of two (2) claims $1,000.00 per twelve (12) month period. If it is determined that Your cell phone requires replacement due to the theft of, damage to or an involuntary or accidental parting of the device, You will receive the replacement value subject to the fifty dollar ($50.00) deductible and the benefit maximum. The replacement value is the lesser of Your cellular wireless service provider’s suggested retail value of a similar model replacement cell phone or the actual cost to replace the cell phone.

If Your cell phone is repairable, You will receive an amount as determined by the diagnostic to repair the cell phone subject to the benefit maximum and fifty-dollar ($50.00) deductible.

Note: Electronic issues, such as inability to charge, mechanical or battery failure, where there is no evidence of physical damage, are not covered under this program.

When does it apply?

Cellular Telephone Protection applies when You make Your monthly cellular wireless phone bill payment with Your eligible card. Coverage begins the first day of the calendar month following a payment of the cellular wireless phone bill.

If You fail to make a cellular wireless phone bill payment in a particular month, Your coverage will be suspended. Coverage will resume on the first day of the calendar month after the date of any future cellular wireless phone bill payment made with the eligible card.

If Your cell phone is stolen as a result of criminal activity, You must file a police report within forty-eight (48) hours of the event.

What is not covered?

This benefit will not provide reimbursement for the following:

  • Cell phone accessories other than standard battery and/or standard antenna provided by the manufacturer
  • Cell phones purchased for resale, professional, or commercial use
  • Cell phones that are lost or “mysteriously disappear,” meaning that the phone vanished in an unexplained manner without evidence of a wrongful act by a person or persons
  • Cell phones under the care and control of a common carrier (including, but not limited to, the U.S. Postal Service, airplanes, or delivery service)
  • Cell phones stolen from baggage unless hand-carried and under Your personal supervision, or under supervision of Your traveling companion
  • Cell phones which have been rented, borrowed or are part of pre-paid or “pay as you go” type plans
  • Cosmetic damage to the cell phone or damage that does not impact the cell phone’s capabilities and functionalities
  • Damage or theft resulting from abuse, intentional acts, fraud, hostilities of any kind (including, but not limited to, war, invasion, rebellion, or insurrection), confiscation by the authorities, risks of contraband, illegal activities, normal wear and tear, flood, earthquake, radioactive contamination, or damage from inherent product defects
  • Damage or theft resulting from misdelivery or voluntary parting with the cell phone
  • Taxes, delivery and transportation charges, and any fees associated with the cellular wireless service provider

Filing a Purchase Security claim

Call the Benefit Administrator at 1-800-553-4820, or call collect outside the U.S. at 1-303-967-1096, within sixty (60) days of the damage or theft (if You wait longer, coverage may be denied). The Benefit Administrator will ask for some preliminary claim information, answer Your questions and send You a claim form. When You submit Your claim, be sure to include all information regarding Your claim including the time, place, cause and the amount to either replace or repair the item.

If You have insurance (homeowner’s, renter’s, car, employer or any other), You are required to file a claim with Your insurance company and to submit a copy of any claim settlement from Your insurance company along with Your claim form. Purchase Security provides coverage on an “excess” coverage basis, meaning it does not duplicate coverage, but pays for a loss only after valid and collectible insurance or indemnity (including, but not limited to, homeowner’s, renter’s, automobile, or employer’s insurance policies) has been exhausted. At that point, Purchase Security will cover the loss up to the amount charged to Your eligible Account, subject to the terms, exclusions, and limits of liability of the benefit.

This benefit also pays for the outstanding deductible portion of Your insurance or indemnity for eligible claims. The maximum total limit of liability is up to one thousand dollars ($1,000.00) per claim occurrence and fifty thousand dollars ($50,000.00) per cardholder. You will receive no more than the purchase price as recorded on the eligible card receipt.

When a protected item is part of a pair or set, You will receive no more than the value (as described above) of the particular part or parts, stolen or damaged, regardless of any special value that item may have as part of such a pair or set, and no more than the proportionate part of an aggregate purchase price of such pair or set.

Auto Rental Collision Damage Waiver

This disclosure describes the benefit in effect as of 6/22/2020. Benefit information in this disclosure replaces any prior benefit information you may have received. Please read and retain for your records. Your eligibility is determined by UVA Community Credit Union.

No cardholder wants to incur the expense of repairing or replacing a rented car. But accidents do happen, and vehicles do get stolen. No matter what happens to Your rental car, You can be covered with Auto Rental Collision Damage Waiver.

Auto Rental Collision Damage Waiver reimburses You for damages caused by theft or collision -- up to the Actual Cash Value of most rented cars. Auto Rental Collision Damage Waiver covers no other type of loss. For example, in the event of a collision involving Your rented vehicle, damage to any other driver’s car or the injury of anyone or anything is not covered. Rental periods of fifteen (15) consecutive days within Your country of residence, and thirty-one (31) consecutive days outside it, are both covered. (Longer rental periods, however, are not covered.).

You are eligible for this benefit if Your name is embossed on an eligible card issued in the United States and You use it to initiate and complete Your entire car rental transaction. Only You as the primary car renter and any additional drivers permitted by the Rental Car Agreement are covered.

How Auto Rental Collision Damage Waiver works with other insurance

Auto Rental Collision Damage Waiver covers theft, damage, valid loss-of-use charges imposed and substantiated by the auto rental company, administrative fees and reasonable and customary towing charges, due to a covered theft or damage to the nearest qualified repair facility.

If You do have personal automobile insurance or other insurance that covers theft or damage, this benefit reimburses You for the deductible portion of Your car insurance or other insurance, along with any unreimbursed portion of administrative and loss-of-use charges imposed by the car rental company, as well as reasonable towing charges while the car was Your responsibility.

If You do not have personal automobile insurance or any other insurance, the benefit reimburses You for covered theft, damage, or administrative and loss of- use charges imposed by the rental company, as well as reasonable towing charges that occur while You are responsible for the vehicle.

If You are renting outside of Your country of residence, the coverage provided under this benefit is primary and reimburses You for covered theft, damage, or administrative and loss-of-use charges imposed by the rental company, as well as reasonable towing charges that occur while You are responsible for the vehicle.

How to use Auto Rental Collision Damage Waiver

  1. Use Your card to initiate and complete Your entire car rental transaction.
  2. Review the auto rental agreement and decline the rental company’s collision damage waiver (CDW/LDW) option, or a similar provision, as accepting this coverage will cancel out Your benefit. If the rental company insists that You purchase their insurance or collision damage waiver, call the Benefit Administrator for assistance at 1-800-397-9010. Outside the United States, call collect at 1-303-967-1093.

Before You leave the lot, be sure to check the car for any prior damage.

This benefit is in effect during the time the rental car is in Your (or an authorized driver’s) control, and it terminates when the rental company reassumes control of their vehicle.

This benefit is available in the United States and most foreign countries (with the exception of Israel, Jamaica, the Republic of Ireland or Northern Ireland). However, this benefit is not available where precluded by law, or where it’s in violation of the territory terms of the auto rental agreement, or when prohibited by individual merchants. Because regulations vary outside the United States, check with Your auto rental company and the Benefit Administrator before You travel, to be sure that Auto Rental Collision Damage Waiver will apply.

Vehicles not covered

Certain vehicles are not covered by this benefit, they consist of: expensive, exotic, and antique cars; cargo vans; certain vans; vehicles with an open cargo bed; trucks; motorcycles; mopeds; motorbikes; limousines; and recreational vehicles. Examples of expensive or exotic cars are the Alfa Romeo, Aston Martin, Bentley, Corvette, Ferrari, Jaguar, Lamborghini, Lotus, Maserati, Maybach, McLaren, Porsche, Rolls Royce, and Tesla.

Vans are not covered. But those designed as small-group transportation vehicles (seating up to nine (9) people, including the driver) are covered.

If You have questions about a specific vehicle’s coverage or organization where the vehicle is being reserved, call the Benefit Administrator at 1-800- 397-9010, or call collect outside the United States at 1-303-967-1093.

Filing a claim

Outside the United States, call collect at 1-303-967-1093.

You should report the theft or damage as soon as possible but no later than forty-five (45) days from the date of the incident.

The Benefit Administrator reserves the right to deny any claim containing charges that would not have been included, if notification occurred before the expenses were incurred. Thus, it’s in Your best interest to notify the Benefit Administrator immediately after an incident. Reporting to any other person will not fulfill this obligation.

  • A copy of the initial and final auto rental agreements (front and back)
  • A copy of the repair estimate and itemized repair bill
  • Two (2) photographs of the damaged vehicle, if available

  • The completed and signed Auto Rental Collision Damage Waiver claim form (Important: This must be postmarked within ninety (90) days* of the theft or damage date, even if all other required documentation is not yet available – or Your claim may be denied).
  • A copy of Your monthly billing statement (showing the last four [4] digits of the Account number) demonstrating that the entire rental transaction was made on Your eligible Account.
  • A statement from Your insurance carrier (and/or Your employer or employer’s insurance carrier, if applicable), or other reimbursement showing the costs for which You are responsible, and any amounts that have been paid toward the claim. Or, if You have no applicable insurance or reimbursement, a statement of no insurance or reimbursement is required.
