So What is Mortgage Payment Protection Insurance?

Mortgage Payment Protection Insurance covers the costs of your mortgage should you lose your job or become critically ill (or both). You can take out joint mortgage protection insurance to cover yourself and your partner, or you can take this cover out yourself. The choice is yours!

Your mortgage is probably one of your largest expenditures, and one of the more important as were you to stop paying it, you may lose your home. Mortgage Payment Protection Insurance ensures you will not lose your home, even if you no longer have a secure income.

What Sort of Mortgage Protection Insurance Quotes Can You Expect?

There are a few types of Mortgage Protection Insurance. The main three cover: critical illness, loss of job and a combination of the two. Of course, the Mortgage Payment Protection Insurance quotes for the combination will be more expensive than the separate.

Of course, the amount you will pay will depend on a range of factors. Such as your age, employment type, and the cost of your mortgage.

Which one you go for will be dependent on your own personal situation. For example, if you have a secure job or a good redundancy package, then you may only need the critical illness insurance.
