If you're the main breadwinner in the household and you have a mortgage to pay, then you'll want to know that if anything should happen to you, your family will be provided for and won't be at risk of losing their home,
No one really wants to think about this bleak outlook, but having adequate protection in place could give you the peace of mind you need that your family will be protected in the future if the worst should happen.
As your mortgage is likely to be your biggest outgoing, you can take out specific insurance that will cover this in the event of your unexpected death.
What is Mortgage Life Insurance?
Mortgage Insurance is simply a form of Life Insurance that will allow your family to pay off your mortgage in the event of your death. You can choose to insure yourself for the sum of your outstanding mortgage balance at the time of your death. This is usually referred to as decreasing term life insurance - this will pay out an amount appropriate to your current mortgage debt only. This is often a more affordable form of cover, but the downside is that there will be no spare cash left over once your mortgage debt has been paid off.
If you would prefer to leave a bit extra money spare for your family then one option would be to take out level term life insurance.
Level Term Insurance will pay out a set amount if you die within the term of the mortgage. If you've taken out £200,000 worth of cover and you die when you only have an outstanding balance of £20.000, your family will still get the full payout of £200,000 - enough to cover your final mortgage payments with enough left over to settle any other debts or help to maintain their current costs of living.
