Insurance & Mortgage Protection

When you purchase a home it would be prudent to consider purchasing life insurance too. Life insurance can pay your dependants money as a lump sum or as regular payments if you die so that the mortgage can be cleared or mortgage or bill payments can be met. It is designed to provide you with the reassurance that your dependents will be looked after if you are no longer there to provide.

Life insurance covers the worst-case scenario, but it’s also important to consider how you might pay your bills or your mortgage if you couldn’t work because of illness or injury.

Lonsdale Mortgage brokers are qualified to discuss insurance and mortgage protection products. We will review a range of available insurance products to ensure we find the right product for you.

Insurance Products

Life Insurance

Life insurance pays out a chosen lump sum, to your dependents in the event of death within the chosen policy term. There are different types of life insurance cover:

  • Level Term Assurance pays out a chosen lump sum if you die within the chosen policy term.
  • Decreasing Term Assurance also known as Mortgage Protection pays out a reducing lump sum if you die within the chosen policy term, this is usually used to clear a repayment mortgage where the balance reduces over the term of the mortgage.
  • Family Income Benefit pays out a monthly income to your dependents if you die within the policy term. You choose the amount to be paid out and the period of the cover. Payments usually stop once the policy term ends.

Critical Illness Cover

Critical Illness insurance pays out a chosen lump sum if you are diagnosed with a critical illness or disability and covers the critical illnesses specified in the policy documentation, usually serious or long term conditions. Cover lasts for the period chosen e.g. until the mortgage is repaid or until retirement age.

Critical Illness cover can be added to a life insurance policy (level or decreasing term assurance) so the policy pays out in the event of death or an earlier critical illness or can be purchased as a standalone policy.

Income Protection

Income Protection pays out a percentage of your salary (usually around 50%) if you are unable to work due to illness or disability, so that you can continue paying your mortgage and bills. Income Protection pays monthly tax free payments if you have been unable to work due to illness after a deferred period, usually three or six months. Payments stop when you are able to return to work or when the policy ends. Cover lasts for the period chosen.
