How would your family survive if you happened to die tomorrow?
This is a tough question. However, it is an appropriate one to ask when you are taking out a large debt against your home. Many leave it too late to ensure that their home and family would be protected against the risk of death and can leave financial worry as well as emotional pain behind.
Life insurance generally pays out a cash lump sum if you die within the term of the policy. Cover can be set up on a level or decreasing basis.
Level Term Assurance
This cover will ensure that the amount of cover you take out remains the same throughout the term of the policy. This allows you to know exactly what you will get upon a successful claim.
Decreasing Term Assurance
Often referred to as ‘mortgage protection’, as this will decrease time in line with a repayment mortgage. This will mirror the outstanding balance on your mortgage to make sure the debt can be paid off upon a successful claim.
Family Income Benefit
Pays out a monthly income rather than a lump sum. This can be used for replacing a lost salary or paying for ongoing costs such as childcare, school fees and general household expenditure.
