Payment Protection Insurance For Peace of Mind Financially

Jul 24, 2008
If you want complete peace of mind that if you should lose your income you would not be left struggling each month, then you need to give some consideration to payment protection insurance. This type of insurance would cover a range of essential payments that you have to keep up with each month. Policies would cover against the possibility of you losing your income after becoming unemployed due to reasons not of your own such as by being made redundant. It would also protect against the possibility that you might not be able to work if you were sick or suffered an accident.

For instance if you have mortgage repayments that have to be kept up with then you could consider taking out mortgage payment protection. This would ensure that you would have the money needed each month to be able to pay the mortgage payment when it was due. You would not have to worry about falling behind on your mortgage and of the lender choosing to repossess your home.

Debts such as loan or credit card repayments also have to be kept up with and you are able to do this by covering them with loan payment protection. A policy can be taken to insure up to a certain amount of your loan or credit card repayments each month to make sure that you do not get into debt with them. Getting behind on loan repayments can see you being taken to court by the lender and this means at the very least your credit rating would be affected and the worse situation would see you obtaining a County Court Judgement and possibly having bailiffs take possessions of yours to sell.

If you are worried about being able to meet all of your essential bills each month then income payment protection can be taken. With this type of insurance behind you there would be no worry about missing mortgage repayments or loan repayments and you would also be able to keep up with all your other outgoings each month. You can insure up to so much of your income, all providers will put a limit on the amount you are able to insure each month and then you get this back. With the cover you are able to keep ahead with your bills and this leaves you free to find work if you are unemployed or to make a recovery.

The premiums for all payment protection insurance are based on how much you choose to protect, your age and with mortgage insurance whether you choose to cover against all three eventualities or just need accident and sickness cover only or unemployment only. You would then pay the premium each month and if and when you needed to claim wait the period of time set out in the policy before claiming.

Providers usually ask that you wait at the least 30 days and with some providers for up to 90 days before claiming on your payment protection insurance. The policy would the provide your tax-free income for the time set out in the cover which is usually either 12 months or 24 months. After this your policy would end but generally it is more than adequate enough time to have recovered or to have found work again.
