Protect your biggest financial commitment
What is mortgage protection?
Buying a home is one of the biggest financial commitments you’ll ever make so putting the right cover in place to protect it should be a top priority. Mortgage protection insurance is designed to pay off the outstanding balance on your mortgage in the event of death.
Certain plans, like Convertible Mortgage Protection can give you a lot more value for your money and also safeguard your ability to get future cover, even if you later suffer ill health. Better still, it is more affordable than you might think.
Why do you need it?
If you die prematurely your plan can be used to:
- Clear your mortgage
- Secure ownership of your home
