Loan Payment Insurance Protects Unemployment and Incapacity

Jun 28, 2008
None of us know what lies around the corner and if we have commitments to payout each month it makes sense to do everything we can to ensure that we would be financially secure. One way of protecting any loan or credit card repayments you have to make is to take out loan payment insurance. A policy can be taken with a standalone provider to give you a sum of money each month so you are able to maintain your outgoings.

Loan insurance has earned a bad name in the past since it was revealed that many policies have been mis-sold and consumers were unable to claim on them when needed. It has also been called over priced with high street lenders raking in 4 billion in profits from selling cover in with the borrowing. While it is true that policies have been mis-sold it is the high street lenders that have mainly been associated with mis-selling. Providing you have read the terms and conditions of the cover you will know if it is suitable before taking out a policy.

Standalone specialist providers will ensure that you have all the information needed to be able to determine suitability. While it can be tempting to skip the small print if you want to be sure that a policy is right you do have to take the time to read it. Providing you do, you will have a safety net on which to fall and rely on.

Loan payment protection insurance would provide you with an income based on up to a certain amount of your loan or credit card repayments each month. The premium will reflect this and your age at the time of taking out the policy. You would then pay this premium each month and if you were to become unemployed through reasons not of your own you would be able to claim on the cover. The policy would also protect you against the possibility of you being unable to work after becoming ill or after suffering an accident.

You have to check and compare the key facts of any loan insurance protection you are considering taking out as this is where you will be able find the exclusions and also when the policy would begin and when it would end. Providers will offer loan payment insurance that can provide you with an income for 12 months or with some it could be 24 months. You would have to wait a certain length of time before putting in your claim and again this depends on the provider. Some will ask that you are unemployed or incapacitated for 30 days continually while others might ask that you stand for up to 90 days.

Loan payment insurance is valuable and is a small price to pay for the security that a policy provides. You would be able to concentrate on making a full recovery without adding additional stress into the factor. If you are unemployed then you can search for work that is suitable without feeling pressure of having to take the first job that comes along.
