C. If a credit involuntary unemployment policy, otherwise meeting the requirements of Regulation .11 of this chapter, provides for payment of benefits in the event of family leave as defined in Regulation .04B(15) of this chapter, the insurer may charge a rate not to exceed 4 percent more than the rates in Regulations .09E, .10A or B, or .12B of this chapter.

D. The prima facie premium rates for credit involuntary unemployment benefit insurance in this regulation apply to all premiums charged on or after the effective date of this chapter, for every class of business.

E. Rates Per $100 Outstanding Balance Per Month.

(1) Rates stated as $0.xx per $100 outstanding balance per month shall be consistent with the above rates.

(2) For example, if a credit card requires a minimum payment of 5 percent of the balance, a rate of $0.40 per $10 of monthly benefit may also be stated as $0.20 per $100 of outstanding balance because $10 is 5 percent of $200.

(3) As another example, if the minimum required payment is 3 percent of the outstanding balance, the $0.40 per $10 of monthly benefit rates translates to $0.12 per $100 of outstanding balance.

(4) For purposes of this section, the following formula may be used:

M = R 10 P

If: M = monthly rate per $100 of outstanding balance,

R = rate per $10 of payment of term,

P = the percent of the outstanding balance required by the creditor as the minimum monthly payment, but not less than 3 percent.
