Protect Your Home With Mortgage Payment Protection Insurance

Jul 25, 2008
If you were to find that you are going to be made redundant then life would become very hard and you would be filled with dread of how you are going to be able to maintain the repayments of your mortgage. If you do not keep up with the repayments the lender could end up repossessing your home and you would be evicted. To protect yourself against this eventuality or the possibility that you might become unable to work after becoming ill or after having an accident, consider mortgage payment protection insurance.

You would be able to take out a policy to cover up to a certain amount of your mortgage repayments and this is used to continue making your repayments each month. You can avoid any possibility of falling behind into arrears and so not have the worry that you would have to scrimp and scrape.

While you might consider using savings this is not the best of plans to fall back on as they could soon run dry. Relying on getting benefits from the State is not always a suitable option either as you would have to meet many requirements. You would have to able to claim Income support and not have someone living with you who is in full time work for starters. Even if you were eligible to claim from the State the amount you could get towards your mortgage repayment would depend on many things. However you would only get up to so much towards the interest part of the mortgage and nothing towards the capitol.

If you want total peace of mind then looking online for mortgage payment protection insurance is the best way to go about gaining it. You can find all the information needed to decide suitability and then apply quickly and easily. If you choose to buy from an independent specialist this is the best way to make huge savings which can be up to as much as 40%. The premium a standalone specialist will charge will be based on how much you want to protect of your mortgage payment each month and your age. Age based protection is one way for even those who have stretched their budget to a maximum to protect the roof over their head. You are also able to choose the level of cover needed. You could take accident, sickness and unemployment protection together or just choose unemployment cover only or incapacity only.

There is always a period of time which you have to be unable to work or have been unemployed for and this varies depending on the terms set out by the provider. Usually most providers put the deferment period in between 30 and 90 days. Some providers would backdate their cover to the first day of becoming unemployed or of being incapacitated so you have to check in the terms of the policy. Upon commencement your mortgage payment protection insurance would continue to provide you with your income for between 12 months and 24 months and then it would cease.
