Income Mortgage Protection Makes Sure Your Home Remains Yours

Sep 10, 2008
Income mortgage protection would allow you the peace of mind that if you should lose your income due to suffering illness, accident or you became unemployed you would not be struggling. A policy would allow you to take out insurance for up to a certain amount of your own income. All providers set a limit to this amount so you have to check before taking out the policy.

One of your biggest payments, your mortgage is of course protected with income mortgage protection. Getting behind on this payment is the worst case scenario for any homeowner as the lender could take you to court and you could lose your home to repossession. You would have to be able to come to an agreement with the lender so that you could catch up on the arrears while also at the same time manage to pay your regular payment.

While income protection would allow you to keep up with the repayments of the mortgage it also protects all of your other essential outgoings. If you have loan/credit card repayments to keep up with then you would be able to use the income from the cover. You would also be able to pay monthly bills that keep up the home such as your utility bills along with your monthly food bill.

Income mortgage protection taken with a standalone provider can be taken for a premium that is based on the amount you wish to protect and your age. A policy would begin to provide you with an income between a period of 30 and 90 days with some providers backdating the cover to the first day of you being unemployed or incapacitated. After commencement the cover would continue paying out for a certain length of time defined by the provider. A policy could provide you with an income for either 12 monthly payments or 24 monthly payments and then it would cease. However this is usually more than enough time to have made a recovery and got back to work or to have found another suitable job.

When looking for income mortgage protection you should not get it confused with income protection insurance. Income protection insurance is a type of insurance similar but it does not payout if you should become unemployed. It would payout against accident and sickness and one of the main differences is that it would payout up to the age of retirement if it was necessary. However there is a longer period of deferment before you would be able to put in a claim on the cover. All policies have exclusions within them and these need checking against your circumstances if you are to be sure that you would be able to claim on the cover. Providing you choose an ethical payment protection specialist to take your policy out with you can be sure that you would have a back up plan to fall back against. Policies are a much more reliable option than relying on help from the State or falling back on savings you have accumulated.
