Is There a Policy Which Combines Life Insurance and Income Protection?

Having just taken out a mortgage I am looking at my insurance options and wanted to take out Life Insurance and Income Protection. I was just wondering if there was a single policy that does both? Or do I need to look at them separately?

Question asked by Joan Arthur

Combined Life and Income Protection Insurance

This is a very good question and one that gets asked quite frequently. With many individuals who take out a mortgage, they want to protect both the total outstanding debt should they pass away as well as the monthly mortgage repayments should they become too ill to work.

To do so you are correct in thinking it is a combination of Life Insurance and Income Protection.

  • Life Insurance will pay out a lump sum on death to pay off any outstanding mortgage balance.
  • Income Protection will pay out a monthly income to replace lost earnings including your mortgage if you are too ill or injured to work.

Separate Income Protection and Life Insurance is Usually Cheaper…

We did some research into this and more often than not it was more cost-effective to look at each policy independently, setting up each policy specifically for its purpose rather than a one size fits all approach.

This is very important particularly if you are a company director or in a higher risk manual occupation where there are insurers which have created products specifically for these demographics.

To find out what it would cost to protect your monthly mortgage repayments if you suffer an accident or sickness or receive a lump sum payout on death you can use our quote tools which compares pricing from all the leading UK insurers.

It is worth bearing in mind if you are self-employed, company director or have existing health conditions there are a number of insurers which may be more appropriate than those we can quote online.
