California Civil Code

Sec. § 1812.405

This title shall not prohibit a creditor from invoking any creditor’s remedy as a result of a debtor’s nonpayment when due of any amount obtained under an open-end credit plan, as hereafter defined, after the debtor has given notice of a disability claim unless the nonpayment is related to a covered disability then affecting the debtor other than the disability previously claimed. The creditor’s termination of the open-end credit plan because the debtor does not meet the creditor’s customary credit standards at the time the debtor notifies the creditor of the disability claim is not a creditor’s remedy.
An “open-end credit plan” means credit extended by a creditor under a plan in which the creditor reasonably contemplates repeated transactions, the creditor may impose a finance charge from time to time on an outstanding unpaid balance, and the amount of credit that may be extended to the debtor during the term of the plan (up to any limit set by the creditor) is generally made available to the extent that any outstanding balance is repaid.
