Income Protection and Mortgage Payment Insurance

Jul 29, 2008
Income protection and mortgage payment insurance are two both very valuable insurance policies that you are able to take out for a small premium each month if you choose to buy from a specialist in payment protection. Both policies ensure that if you should lose your income after suffering from an illness or an accident or if you become unemployed you would have something to fall back on.

Income protection and mortgage payment insurance can be found with an independent payment protection specialist who could provide you with a policy for mortgage cover that was 40% cheaper than you could get it for by adding it onto the cost of the mortgage when borrowing. High street lenders do offer cover but it is well known for the huge costs that it incurs on top of the mortgage. A standalone provider would offer a policy that would be based on the level of protection you wanted, your age with an aged based policy, and the amount you wished to protect each month.

You are able to choose from mortgage cover for accident, sickness and unemployment together, accident and sickness alone or unemployment alone. Your age is taken into account and this allows those who have taken on huge mortgages to be able to afford to protect their borrowings and the roof over their head. Protecting your mortgage repayments is essential as if not and you get into arrears there is a strong possibility that the lender could choose to take repossession of your home.

Income protection would allow you to be able to maintain all of your essential outgoings which also include your mortgage and any loan repayments that you have to make each month. You would also be able to keep up with all other bills needed to keep the home running and to keep you out of debt. You would not have to scrimp and scrape in order to be able to find the money needed to pay your outgoings or have to juggle what little money you did have around in order to be able to meet your bills. You would be able to concentrate on searching for work or of making a recovery and get back to earning a wage again and supporting the family.

Both income protection and mortgage payment insurance would pay out after you had been unable to work or was incapacitated for a certain length of time and it would also payout for a set period before expiring. Usually providers will set out that you have to wait until between 30 and 90 days before you are able to put in your claim. Policies will usually then provide you with your income which is tax-free for between 12 and 24 months. You would have to check to make sure that are eligible to claim before buying the protection as cover is not suitable for your needs. Exclusions can be found in all forms of payment protection and checking these is the only sure way of knowing whether or not you would have something to rely on if and when needed.
