Find out how you can protect your mortgage so your loved ones can keep their home when you can't be there.
What is mortgage cover?
This type of cover works just like a normal life insurance policy. It pays out a cash lump sum if you die before the policy ends. So it could help your loved ones pay off the mortgage if something happens to you.
Do I need mortgage cover?
Mortgage life insurance might be right for you if:
- you have a repayment mortgage
- you have children or loved ones who rely on your income
- you’re the main earner in your family
- you’d like to make sure your loved ones can keep their home after your death
- your loved ones would struggle to pay off the mortgage without you.
How much does it cost?
The amount you pay each month depends on the length of your policy and the size of the cash lump sum that gets paid out when a claim is made. The price might also change based on your age, health and lifestyle.

Cover reduced but payments stay the same
How does decreasing cover work?
Decreasing cover means that the cash pay-out goes down each month until your policy ends. You'll pay the same amount each month.
What’s the benefit of decreasing cover?
Decreasing cover is usually a cheaper kind of cover. It's often used to protect a repayment mortgage. As you pay off your mortgage, the outstanding amount will go down. So the amount that your cover pays out when you die will go down, too. If you mainly need cover for your mortgage, you could get the support you need and pay less each month than level cover.
