Mortgage life insurance

Mortgage life insurance

A mortgage is a big commitment. You don't want your loved ones to have to worry about how they're going to make the repayments if you're not around. Even if you're not earning a salary, your contribution to the household is still invaluable. How would your family cope and make ends meet without you?

With mortgage life insurance you'd know that the cover could help pay off the mortgage if you died during the length of the policy, so your loved ones might not have to think about selling up or downsizing. And, if you add Critical Illness Cover (extra premium) this could also pay out if you're diagnosed with one of our specified critical illnesses during the length of the policy.

This is not a savings or investment product and has no cash value unless a valid claim is made. Please refer to the Policy Summary for details, exclusions and limitations that apply.
