Cover the Repayments of Your Mortgage With Mortgage Protection

Jul 25, 2008
Just as you can cover your life with life insurance and your car with car insurance then you can cover the repayments of your mortgage with mortgage protection. This is a valuable form of insurance that would allow you to ensure you would not get behind on your mortgage repayments and so not be at risk of losing your home through repossession.

When you take into account the fact that you will be repaying your mortgage over many years the chances of you not falling ill and having to take some time from work are very slim. All being well it would be in the short term and would not a problem. However you also have to take into account that you could be unable to work for many months or you could suffer an accident that meant you were unable to work. You also have to give some thought to the possibility that you might become unemployed through such as redundancy while repaying your mortgage.

By taking out a policy you will receive an income which is the sum you insured for when taking out the policy. This will go towards setting the amount for the premium that you pay each month along with age and which type of policy you want to take out. The younger generation who are buying a home for the first time very often take on a huge mortgage which leaves them with very little money to pay the high cost of some premiums to cover their mortgage. An age based mortgage policy is affordable and it can stop you losing your home.

While you can take out mortgage protection to cover the possibilities of accident, sickness and unemployment together, you can also tailor the policy. If you wish you can just take out protection for accident and sickness only or for unemployment only.

With a policy behind you, you would not have to give any thought to where you would get the money needed to be able to continue meeting the repayments of your mortgage. You would be able to rely on the tax-free income given to you by your policy once it had started to payout. Some providers will offer cover that would begin from day 30 and others might state you cannot claim until the 90th day. You also have to determine for how long the policy would payout. Some providers will pay 12 monthly repayments and others could offer a policy that would provide 24 monthly repayments.

This is not the only reason why you have to check out the terms and conditions of the policy. All policies will come with some exclusions and these have to be checked against your circumstance so that you can be sure you would have something to fall back on. Ethical providers would add-in only the most frequently found exclusions but some providers might add in more. Mortgage protection does do the job of protecting your mortgage repayments providing it is a suitable product for your circumstances, so always make use of the information a specialist provider will give you before taking out the policy.
