There is uncertainty in life and insurance is designed to reduce the burden of this uncertainty. Obviously, for your family, no amount of money could possibly replace you. However, consider the financial implications if something were to happen to you. Then a mortgage life insurance is a life insurance designed to help assure that, in the event of your death, your family can remain in the house they love.
Mortgage Life Insurance can help care for your family´s financial situation by paying off the outstanding balance of the mortgage on your home with a cash sum should you die before the end of the term of your policy. The level of coverage decreases in line with a standard repayment mortgage, so you are only paying for the life cover you require.
And you choose the amount of cover and the length of time you need the cover to last and your monthly payment will stay the same until the end of the plan.
What does these mortgage life insurance plans provide? Well, normally the plan pays out a cash lump sum that can pay off your outstanding mortgage if you die or are diagnosed with a terminal illness before the end of the plan term. You can also have a plan that covers yourself and your partner. The plan can be set up on a joint life basis where the cash sum is paid out on the first person to die or be diagnosed with a terminal illness while you’re covered.
A mortgage life insurance is easy to have, all you need to do is keep up your monthly payments for the term of your plan. If you don´t keep up your monthly payments, your cover will stop, your plan will end and you will not get any money back.
The amount you will have to pay each month depends on a several things, like the amount of cover you need, the length of time you want your cover to last, your age and sex, whether or not you smoke and your health.
Most companies that provide mortgage life insurance plans have a website where you can calculate the cost depending on the figures you enter. You can also apply for the insurance online. It might be good to talk to someone about your circumstances and get advice on how to apply.
The insurance plan will stop at the end of the selected term or when the pay out of the cash sum has been done, whichever happens first. If you become terminally ill it is great to have a terminal illness benefit included in your insurance. In that case the plan pays out the cash sum if you (or your partner if you choose a joint life plan) are diagnosed with an illness that is expected to cause death within 12 months and before your plan ends.
