Mortgage Life Insurance vs. Decreasing Term Life Insurance
Most people are under the impression that decreasing term life insurance is the best way to
protect your family if you have a mortgage. Not so. The best and cheapest way is to obtain
term life insurance for the term of your mortgage (mortgage protection insurance). For example,
if you obtain a mortgage for 30 years, you should get a life insurance term of 30 years. This way,
your family will get the entire amount of the mortgage if you happen to die within 30 years.
This is renewable and convertible term life insurance for a specific time that features
substantial life insurance protection at a reasonable price.
- Initial guaranteed level premium durations of 10, 15, 20 & 30 years are available.
- At the end of the policy term, your premiums increase annually.
- The death benefit remains the same throughout the live of the policy.
- You can designate the proceeds to pay your mortgage.
- If you pay off your mortgage early, you can keep the coverage until the term your policy expires.
- Your policy's term of coverage is guaranteed to renew to age 95. Once in force, your policy will
not be cancelled due to changes in health or occupation as long as premiums are paid when due.
- Without providing evidence of insurability, your policy is guaranteed convertible until the
end of the policy term (or age 70), to a Whole Life Policy.
