What happens if I qualify for Quin Lifestyle Protection.  

Upon becoming eligible for Quin Lifestyle Protection, and subject to the additional qualifications and limitations in these Terms and Conditions, You will receive a statement credit towards the balance of Your Quin credit account, up to $1,000 per month, for each month in which You remain Involuntarily Unemployed, for a period of up to 3 months within a 12-month period.  The initial 12-month period begins on the date You activated Your Quin Membership and renews annually on the anniversary date of Your Quin Membership activation date.   

Quin Lifestyle Protection Credit(s) will be applied to the balance of the credit account that is included in Your Quin membership, up to a maximum of $1,000 a month for up to 3 months for a maximum total of $3,000 in a 12-month period.  Quin Lifestyle Protection Credit(s) up to $1,000 per month are applied to any previous balance on Your Quin credit account as well as balances generated during the months Your Quin Lifestyle Protection benefit was active.  Quin Lifestyle Protection Credit(s) will be credited to Your account by the end of Your billing cycle. You may see multiple credits and the credits will appear as Quin Lifestyle Protection on Your monthly statement.

How do I prove I’m Involuntarily Unemployed?

First, You need to let Us know You are Involuntarily Unemployed by activating Your Quin Lifestyle Protection through the Quin app (an “Activation”) within 30 days of the unemployment event.  

Once You Activate Your Quin Lifestyle Protection, We will need to verify that You are Involuntarily Unemployed and that You qualify.  

To help us expeditiously verify Your Involuntary Unemployment status, you may be required to submit documentation including, but not limited to, proof from Your employer of Your previous employment status and number of weekly hours worked for 90 days prior to your Activation.  We may also need documentation from Your state unemployment agency that You have met the qualifications to receive state unemployment benefits and are actively seeking employment.  

You will be required to upload the required documentation through the Quin app, other secure web portals or via email.  We will determine if You meet the eligibility requirements by reviewing the information submitted and making a decision based on information and documents provided. We will let You know the statuses and outcome of Your Activation through notifications in your Quin app throughout the duration of Your Activation.

You will be required to provide proof of ongoing Involuntary Unemployment within 5 days of the start of each month to access up to $1,000 of coverage for the following month, up to 3 months in a 12 month period. You may be required to provide documentation from Your state unemployment agency and your former employer as proof of ongoing Involuntary Unemployment.

Note:  IF YOU ARE NOT AWARDED INVOLUNTARY UNEMPLOYMENT BENEFITS FROM YOUR STATE, YOU MAY STILL QUALIFY FOR Quin Lifestyle Protection.

Do all types of employment qualify for Quin Lifestyle Protection? No.  There are certain types of employment that are excluded from Quin Lifestyle Protection:  

  • An independent contractor, which is a person who operates an independent business and who is not subject to the immediate direction and control of an employer.
  • A self-employed individual, meaning a person working for income that comes directly from his or her own business, trade, profession, or a partnership (a company or entity in which You have at least ten percent (10%) or greater equity or ownership interest will be regarded as Your own business).
  • A seasonal or temporary worker, which is a person whose occupation can be carried on only during certain seasons or fairly definite portions of the year and where the customary period of employment is less than one thousand (1,000) hours during a calendar year.

What things exclude me from Quin Lifestyle Protection?  

You will not qualify for Quin Lifestyle Protection if Your Involuntary Unemployment:

  • Occurs during the first ninety (90) days of Your Quin Membership;
  • Occurs before You have worked at least ninety (90) days and for at least thirty-five (35) hours per week during those ninety days in the job, which you listed on your application, and for which You are now Involuntarily Unemployed;  
  • Is due to a voluntary forfeiture of salary, wages, or employment income;
  • Is due to voluntary resignation, or retirement;

  • Is due to a circumstance known by You at the time You signed up for Your Quin Membership; 
  • Is due to or arises (directly or indirectly) from or is in any way attributable to war or any act of war (declared or undeclared) or terrorism. 

What if You are Involuntarily Unemployed more than once?  

Once you Activate your Quin Lifestyle Protection and qualify, You are eligible for up to three (3) months of Lifestyle Protection during your annual Quin Membership period.  If You become Involuntarily Unemployed more than once within the same Annual Quin Membership period, We will consider this a continuation of Involuntary Unemployment.  

You can re-activate Quin Lifestyle Protection if You qualify again and if You have not already used up Your three (3) months of protection available to You during Your Annual Quin Membership period.  

If You need to re-activate your existing Quin Lifestyle Protection or activate a new application and You work for the same employer, You will not need to re-qualify for Quin Lifestyle Protection.  If You work for a new employer, You will need to requalify by Activating a new application.  

If You become Involuntarily Unemployed during a subsequent Annual Quin Membership period, We will consider that a new period of Involuntary Unemployment.  So long as You qualify for Quin Lifestyle Protection You will have another three (3) months of coverage available to You for each year You renew Your Annual Quin Membership.

Are there tax implications if I qualify for Quin Lifestyle Protection?

Maybe.  You may be subject to federal, state and local taxes on the amount paid to You with Quin Lifestyle Protection.  You should consult Your tax advisor.
