We can advise on suitable cover to ensure your mortgage is repaid in the event of you dying during the term of your mortgage thereby allowing your dependants to live in their home mortgage free.
Additionally, we can arrange via Family Income Benefit, for your dependants to receive an income for a specified period following your death to meet their living costs.
Life insurance policies may allow the benefit to be taken as either a lump sum or as an annuity. Also, interest on the cash value of the insurance is not taxable in the UK.
Critical Illness Cover
This cover is designed to pay a lump sum on diagnosis of a specified critical illness and can be included as an option with your Life Cover or taken out as a standalone policy. This option can ensure your mortgage is repaid at a time when you are critically ill. Critical illness Cover on a standalone basis is a particularly sensible option for single people without dependants as it provides protection, security and the opportunity to remain financially independent even if critically ill.
Critical Illness policies generally cover a specific list of illnesses, which depend upon the insurer. Insurers won’t pay out for Illnesses outside this list.
Cover designed to provide replacement income through to retirement in the event of you suffering an accident or illness and not being able to return to work. This can be designed to commence when employer sick pay benefit ceases and ensures continuity of income to meet mortgage and living costs.
This cover is hugely important in maintaining independence and the ongoing ability to meet commitments. It is particularly important in situations where the loss of an income through accident or illness would affect the ability to remain in your home.
Income Protection policies provide short- or long-term benefits when illness or disability affects your ability to work.
Short-term income protection generally covers a period of six months, whereas long-term may cover an individual until they’re ready to return to work.
Mortgage Payment Protection Insurance
Cover designed to pay a regular monthly level of benefit for either a 12 or 24 month period (subject to cover). This cover is taken primarily as a means of paying an ongoing mortgage commitment in the event of Accident, Sickness or Unemployment.
The cover can be arranged as either a combined Accident, Sickness and Unemployment cover, or Unemployment only or Accident and Sickness cover only depending on individual circumstances and other cover that may be in place.
Payment Protection Insurance allows you to ensure that payments for your mortgage will continue to be met, even if you become ill or disabled, or your circumstances change. It’s worthwhile checking under which specific conditions a Payment Protection policy will pay out, to be sure it will benefit you. *Payment Protection Insurance is optional.
