It can be added as a lump sum at the time you take a loan out or added onto the expected monthly repayments.

My husband had this type of insurance added to a private loan years ago and we thought we had no recourse. Time to do some paperwork, since we asked why it was attached to the loan and was told it was just policy. Thanks for the info.
