Take Independent Payment Insurance

Jul 24, 2008
Taking out payment insurance is a great way for you to be sure that you would have the money needed to be able to maintain your essential payments. You would be able to keep up with loan and mortgage outgoings along with general bills that keep the home running along smoothly. All in all they are a safety net which can be used if you cannot work due to accident or sickness or if you should become unemployed.

Keeping up with your outgoings is imperative and especially when the mortgage comes around. Not having the money in the bank to be able to pay your mortgage leaves you being faced with repossession. If the lender takes you to court for none payment of your mortgage and you have arrears which you cannot catch up on, then the judge could evict you. However if you have a policy called mortgage payment protection then this would allow you to keep paying your mortgage if you needed something to fall back on. You can find a specialist provider and could make savings in the region of 40%. You can also choose what you want to protect. You could take out a policy for all three possibilities of accident, sickness and unemployment. However you could only want accident and sickness protection or just unemployment protection.

Loan and credit card outgoings would have to be maintained too if you wanted to keep out of debt. A loan payment protection policy would allow you to do this and when taken with a standalone specialist you are able to get it for around 80% cheaper than with the high street lenders. You would not have to worry about County Court Judgements or of having your credit rating destroyed along with your chances of obtaining credit in the future.

To be able to keep up with all of your outgoings including loan or mortgage payments then income payment protection can be a very worthwhile consideration. Providers allow you to insure up to so much and then will give you this back each month by way of your payment insurance if you are out of work up to the period stated in the terms and conditions. This is also used to maintain bills such as heating, lighting and allows you to provide food for the family and other necessities.

When looking into taking out payment insurance you should with an independent provider as this is the best way to make the most savings. You need to find out from what day you could start to claim on the cover as this differs between providers and for how long the policy pays out. Some providers would pay from day 30 and others could pay from the 90th day. Providers might offer a 12 or 24 month policy so this also has to be checked in the terms before taking on the protection. You should also check to see if the policy you are considering would be backdated. Some providers will backdate the benefit to the very first day of you being unemployed or of you being incapacitated.
