I have searched through multiple posts on this topic, but am not completely comfortable with drawing a conclusion. In situations where there are multiple borrowers obtaining credit insurance (could be borrower and co-borrower, or borrower and co-signer), are we allowed to provide the disclosure to only one of those persons? Previous posts seem to indicate that we may provide the disclosure to one person only. But, I don't feel this fits the intent of the disclosure rules.

Still hoping for some comments on this one. Any takers? Please?

I've read both the preamble to the rule and the Interagency Q&A that came out 9/01, and I cannot find it addressed. I can't tell you what we do, because my current employer doesn't sell any type of insurance product during the application process.

If I were establishing a policy, I would probably require each consumer who is actually buying insurance to acknowledge the insurance disclosure. I would probably allow any of the borrowers to acknowledge the credit disclosure.
