  • Your monthly payments will also remain the same, unless you alter your policy

Mortgage life insurance has one clear objective - to help pay off your outstanding mortgage if you die during the policy term so your partner or family can remain in the property without worrying about how they'll pay the mortgage.

We offer two types of mortgage life insurance:

1.  Mortgage term insurance
Designed to help protect an interest-only mortgage, the cash lump sum remains the same throughout the term of your policy.

2.  Mortgage decreasing term insurance
Designed to help protect a repayment mortgage, the cash lump sum will decrease roughly in-line with your remaining mortgage debt.

  • Early payment if you are diagnosed with a terminal illness, except during the last 12 months of the policy
