Protecting those you love with Mortgage Life Insurance

What is Mortgage Life Insurance?

Are you worried about your family covering outstanding debts without you there to help? With Mortgage Life Insurance, you and your loved ones are given the peace of mind that everything has been put in place to secure the family home in the event of your death.

We understand that coping with the sudden loss of a loved one is difficult enough, without the added pressure of having to worry about covering mortgage repayments. This is especially difficult when there is one main income coming into the house.

This specific type of insurance ensures your family are financially supported if you pass away before your mortgage has been fully repaid.

Can you add on critical illness cover or income protection cover?

Many people don’t see the benefit of looking into a Mortgage Protection Plan if they don’t have a family or dependants left at home, but it can also benefit you if you were to lose your job due to an unexpected accident or injury.

Statistics show that less than 28% of homeowners have Critical Illness Cover and less than 12% have Income Protection Cover.

By adding critical illness or income protection cover, you can be assured that your home is protected whilst you concentrate on getting back to being fit and healthy.

Either of these covers can be individually tailored and added to your Mortgage Life Insurance plan.

Critical Illness Cover – If you were to suddenly get diagnosed with a serious illness, taking out this cover will help you pay off some – or all – of your mortgage. This not only provides you with peace of mind, but can also make a significant difference to your recovery.

Income Protection Cover – If you’re unable to work due to illness or injury, this type of cover provides you with a monthly tax-free income – designed to pay up to 70% of a working individuals annual pre-tax income as a tax-free monthly benefit.

What are the benefits of mortgage life insurance cover?

Alongside ensuring that your family are taken care off in the event of your death, a Mortgage Life Insurance Protection Plan can come with several other benefits, such as:

  • Different market leading cover options
  • Tailored protection to suit your requirements
  • Affordable options
  • Temporary cover before your mortgage starts

Frequently Asked Questions

Similar to how Life Insurance works, Mortgage Life Insurance is used cover your mortgage if you were to pass away.

To ensure you are properly covered, you simply need to tell us how much is left to pay on your mortgage and over what term. That is the exact amount of cover and term length you will need to take out.

If you were to die whilst still paying your mortgage, your family would use this money to pay off the outstanding balance. This will allow them to keep their home without any unnecessary stress.

This type of life insurance is what is referred to as a ‘Decreasing Term policy’ – as the amount paid out decreases over time to keep in line with your outstanding mortgage balance.

Although similar, Mortgage Life Insurance is specifically designed to cover your outstanding mortgage balance if you were to die before it had been fully repaid.

Unlike with Life Insurance, this type of cover decreases as you pay your mortgage repayments each month. This is because the pay-out will match the outstanding balance at the time of death. This typically makes it cheaper than Life Insurance.
