What is mortgage protection?

Mortgage protection is a form of life insurance which pays off the outstanding balance on your mortgage should you die before the mortgage is fully repaid. It is compulsory for all mortgage holders in Ireland.

How much does mortgage protection cost per month?

The cost of mortgage protection will depend on several factors such as the size of your mortgage, your age and health status, and whether you want single life or joint life cover. Smokers will also pay more for cover than non smokers. Use our mortgage protection comparison service to find out the price of cover for you.

Why do I need mortgage protection cover?

Mortgage lenders require that you take out mortgage protection or life insurance before they’ll allow you to draw down a mortgage. This is because they want assurance that the loan will be paid off in the unlikely event of your death during the term of the mortgage.

What’s the difference between mortgage protection and life insurance?

Life insurance pays out a lump sum should you die during the term of the policy. This sum remains constant and can even increase each year to help keep up with inflation. With mortgage protection, the lump sum decreases each year to broadly match the outstanding balance on your mortgage. This means it tends to be cheaper than life insurance.

What is joint life and dual life cover?

Joint life cover insures two people under the one policy but a claim is paid out on the first death only. The policy ends when the first person dies.

Dual life cover also insures two people but a claim can be paid out on both deaths. For this reason dual life cover is more expensive than joint life cover. If one person dies, a claim is paid out and the policy continues in the name of the survivor.
