Payment Insurance Protects Mortgage and Loan Repayments

Aug 29, 2008
Payment insurance is available to take out by way of mortgage payment protection, loan payment protection and income payment protection. All three policies could be a lifeline if the policy holder should become unemployed or suffer an accident or illness that meant they were unable to work. It could be many months until work was found again or a full recovery was made. However during this time you would still have to maintain your loan or mortgage repayments. You would also have to keep on paying all of your essential outgoings and payment protection could help you to do this.

For a premium each month when taken out with a standalone payment protection provider you would have peace of mind by receiving a payment each month for the term of the policy from your payment insurance. You might have to wait 30 days or up to 90 days with some providers before you could put in a claim, however some providers backdate to the first day of your unemployment or incapacity. Policies usually run for between 12 months and 24 months which is generally more than enough time for you to get back to work or find work again.

If you have a large mortgage hanging over your head then mortgage payment protection could come in very handy. A policy would supply you with the income needed for you to be able to continue meeting the demands of your repayment and so keep you from home repossession. Lenders will try to help you when it comes to making an agreement but if you do not have an income coming in then this could be impossible. This is when payment insurance comes in very handy.

Loan or credit card repayments have to be met too each month and without an income this might not be possible. At the very least you would earn yourself a bad credit rating, in the worst case you could be taken to court and bailiffs could seize your belongings. Loan payment protection would stop this from happening by giving you the income each month which you insured when taking out the policy.

If you want to ensure that you had a replacement income then income payment protection can be taken to safeguard up to so much of your own income each month. You would then be able to keep up with all of your essential outgoings each month which would include your mortgage, loan and all other bills that came in on a monthly basis.

Payment insurance is a better alternative to relying on help from the State or falling back on savings. While you might be entitled to receive help from the State, the money might not be enough to cover all your outgoings. Help for your mortgage is only for the interest part of the mortgage and up to a certain amount each month. You would have to meet certain criteria such as not having a partner in full time work living with you or have savings over a certain amount. If you were to rely on savings you might have to use them for several months and they might not last, in the case of redundancy you would make a huge dent in it if relying on this to get you by for any length of time.
