What is Mortgage Protection Insurance?

Mortgage protection insurance is essentially a name given to a life insurance policy that is specifically taken out to protect your loved ones in the event of your death during the term of your mortgage.

Mortgage protection pays out a decreasing sum of money during a chosen time frame (term). The term is the number of years that can be specified when you take out the insurance. If you die during the term then the policy will pay out the decreasing sum (which is designed to fall in line with the reducing mortgage debt) tax free as a lump sum. The term usually matches the term of the mortgage.
