Plan for the Future With a Payment Protection Plan

Aug 29, 2008
While things might be going along great right now they could change at anytime and if you have a mortgage or loan repayments to keep up with then problems could arise. In the worst case when getting into mortgage arrears the lender could choose to repossess and you would have a struggle finding the money without an income to catch up. This is when planning for the future by taking out a payment protection plan can come into its own.

A payment protection plan can be taken out in the form of mortgage, loan and income payment protection. All policies will cost you a premium each month based on the amount of cover and your age when applying. You would then be able to fall back onto the income it provided after a period of time, usually between 30 days and the 90th day of unemployment or of being incapacitated. You would then have either 12 months or 24 months depending on the terms of the policy in which to find work or have made a recovery from illness or accident. After this period the policy would simply cease to payout.

A tax-free income for this period of time can help you to keep on top of your outgoings. You would not have to worry about mortgage arrears if you had mortgage payment protection behind you. There would also be no worry about your lender taking you to court for missed loan repayments if you had taken loan payment protection. If you had taken income payment protection you would be able to continue meeting all your essential outgoings without worry including your mortgage, loan, credit card and other bills. A payment protection plan should be considered by all who have financial outgoings to keep up with.

While the majority of mortgage lenders will try to help if you are struggling in the short term. If you are struck down with illness or suffer an accident you could find that making an agreement with them would be almost impossible. Just a couple of months of missed payments could see the lender taking you to court and seeking repossession but it can be avoided by taking out mortgage payment protection.

Many individuals believe that they would be able to apply for benefit from the State. While many might be eligible to claim the monies received from the State is often not enough to for them to pay all of the essential outgoings. If you were to receive help from the State, the help for the mortgage would only be for the interest part and then up to a certain amount. Once again you would fall into arrears and have to suffer the consequences. If you do not have the income to pay your loan repayments then the lender could choose to take you to court and a County Court Judgement would cause many problems. Your credit rating would suffer and this would mean obtaining credit in the future would be next to impossible. If lenders did agree then you might have to pay over the odds for the rate of interest. One of the three payment protection plan available from a standalone providers could stop you from having to make drastic changes to your lifestyle.
