Many companies offer their employees family a lump sum payment if the staff member dies while the firm employs them; you have to be on the payroll at the time of death to qualify for a payment, and this cover will most likely end as soon as you leave the company.
Family income benefit designed to help pay a regular income if you die. An alternative to level term insurance, family income benefit aims to replace lost income if the person insured dies.
Joint Mortgage Life Insurance is a type of Life Assurance designed to repay a mortgage loan should one partner pass away. It can be cheaper than paying the premiums on two separate policies, but bear in mind that joint policies only payout on the first death. After that, the cover ends.
Term Assurance is life insurance where the sum assured under the policy only gets paid out if death occurs within a specified term so that in the event of death before the end of the mortgage, the capital balance outstanding can get repaid.
The whole of life insurance is a policy that helps ensure your family get a payout when you pass. Unlike term life insurance, which has a policy end date, whole of life insurance only ends when you pass away.
You don’t have to take out life insurance for a mortgage; it’s not a legal requirement. But some providers might want you to have a policy in place as a condition of their mortgage offer.
If you fall ill and are unable to work, critical illness cover provides a lump-sum payment that can pay off your mortgage or pay towards it.
If you’d like that extra security, critical illness insurance is available either as a policy addition or in combination with your existing mortgage life insurance policy.
