Mortgage protection insurance is extremely important if your home and its meaning to your loved ones are of matter to you. If for some reason (death or unemployment due to an injury) you cannot pay your mortgage, this insurance will either pay off your mortgage or make your payments until you are able to go back to work. Most frequently, this money is given directly to the insured and not to the mortgage company, which gives you more control over it. If there is excess money from the insurance company, it may be used to pay utility bills or other household expenses.
One mortgage protection plan will provide an amount of cash to pay the remainder of your mortgage, if interest rates are kept below certain limits, in the event that the insured should die before the mortgage is paid off. This means that your family would be able to keep your home, instead of losing it to the bank or having to sell. This insurance is only payable upon the mortgage protection insurance owner?s death, and there is no surrender value. This means that if you pay off your mortgage before you die, you receive no money.
Another type of mortgage protection insurance is coverage for if you cannot work due to illness or involuntary unemployment. Many times, this kind of mortgage insurance can cover payments for up to 12 months if you cannot work due to an illness, injury, or involuntary employment. Often, this mortgage insurance is more financially viable for a younger person, because his or her chance of falling ill is less and his or her likelihood of finding another job is higher. In short, then, the main factors in the price of this insurance are the cost of the home and the age of the insured.
