1. a. The individual and group coverages permitted by N.J.S.17B:29-3 may be offered in combination with credit involuntary unemployment insurance, credit personal property insurance, or both, under separate and distinct policies, provided that the total combined premium amount or rate to be charged to the debtor shall be reduced by five percent or by a greater percentage at the discretion of the insurer.
b. When credit involuntary unemployment insurance is included in the combined coverages and (1) the debtor notifies the insurer in writing that he is or has become ineligible for credit involuntary unemployment insurance coverage by reason of being or becoming voluntarily unemployed, or by reason of being or becoming self-employed, and states the date on which that ineligibility commenced; or (2) a claim is denied under the credit involuntary unemployment insurance coverage because the debtor became ineligible for that coverage, the insurer shall promptly remit a refund of the portion of the premium applicable to the credit involuntary unemployment insurance coverage during the period of ineligibility.
c. (1) Notwithstanding the provisions of N.J.S.17B:27-3 to the contrary, group life insurance coverage may be issued in combination with other coverages in accordance with this section.

d. For the purpose of this section, "credit personal property insurance" means insurance covering direct or indirect damage or loss, by fire or other perils, including those of extended coverage, to the personal property of the debtor all or part of which is the security for the loan, which insurance shall be for an amount and term not to exceed the amount and term of the loan.
