Frequently asked questions
Do I need mortgage protection insurance?
Mortgage protection insurance isn’t a legal requirement, but it’s worth thinking about. Otherwise, you could be leaving behind a significant burden for your loved ones when you die.
If you’re a single person with no dependents, critical illness cover may be a more suitable option. Critical illness cover protects you and your loved ones by providing a lump-sum pay out if you’re diagnosed with a serious health condition.
If you’re unsure about which option is best for you, speak to your Specialist Financial Adviser.
How much does mortgage protection cost?
The cost of cover typically depends on two key factors:
- The value of your mortgage
- The likelihood of death within the mortgage term.
Your age, health, occupation and whether or not you’re a smoker will all play a part in determining the cost. Speak to your Specialist Financial Adviser from Wesleyan Financial Services for more details.
What is the difference between life assurance and mortgage protection?
Both policies provide a lump sum pay-out in the event of your death. However, a life assurance policy typically pays out a pre-defined amount that can be used for any purpose. A mortgage protection policy is designed specifically to pay off your mortgage.
If you’re not sure which is right for you, please speak to one of our Specialist Financial Advisers.
Is mortgage protection the same as PPI?
No. PPI stands for Payment Protection Insurance. It provides financial protection for monthly debt repayments – such as credit cards and loans – in the event you are unable to work. It covers issues such as illness and unemployment, which may prevent you from repaying debit.
One of the main differences between mortgage protection and PPI is that PPI is paid directly to whoever you have borrowed from. Mortgage protection is paid to your family in the event of your death.
Although both policies are similar, mortgage protection insurance is specifically designed to cover any outstanding mortgage when you die.
