We have just taken out a new mortgage and are unsure of what protection we need. We have two additions to the family since we last remortgaged and feel now is the time to get it all sorted.
Without asking further questions and taking you through a full fact find we wouldn’t be able to give you specific advice but we can say that we often recommend that families consider a four step approach to their protection insurance:
Choose Income Protection to protect your monthly income if you are unable to work due to any accident or sickness.
Choose Life Insurance to protect your mortgage and any large outstanding debts. The policy would pay out a lump sum to your beneficiaries in the event of your death or diagnosis of a terminal illness.
Choose Family Income Benefit to protect the standard of living of your loved ones should the worst happen. The policy pays out a monthly sum to your dependents on the event of your death until an age where you believe they would be self-sufficient (usually at the age of 21).
If your budget permits choose a small amount of Critical Illness Insurance, it provides you with a cash lump sum should you or your children suffer from a critical illness, this payment can help with any larger expenses such as adjustments to your home or hospitalisation costs.
Naturally this only provides a very high level overview. To ensure the products fit your needs there is a lot more we would need to know about your circumstances including but not limited to any sick pay or savings you may have to support yourself, the size and type of your mortgage and how long it lasts.
