Mortgage Insurance

When you arrange a mortgage with a financial institution, they must ask you if you want to insure your mortgage through them. But mortgage insurance from your bank or mortgage lender may not be your best option. Mortgage insurance is used to secure the loan by making funds available to pay the balance of the mortgage in the event of death.

It always makes good sense to cover your debts with insurance. There is a better alternative to mortgage insurance which is less costly. It's called Life Insurance. Check out this comparison :


Mortgage insurance

Life insurance

Your insurance covers only your mortgage balance.

You can choose from different types of insurance (i.e. term or permanent) with a death benefit to cover more than just your mortgage.

Even though your mortgage debt reduces over time, your premiums remain level.

Your coverage amount does not decrease over time unless you choose to change it.

If you die, only the outstanding balance on your mortgage is paid off.

If you die, the death benefit is paid to your beneficiary who can use it as they see fit, not just to pay off your mortgage.

The mortgage lender is automatically the beneficiary.

You name the beneficiary.

If you take your mortgage to another company, you may lose your existing mortgage insurance and may be required to re-qualify for new mortgage insurance.

If you take your mortgage to another company you keep your existing insurance, so you don't have to re-qualify.

You lose all your coverage when your mortgage is repaid, assumed or in default.

As long as premiums are paid your coverage remains in place, even if your mortgage is repaid, assumed or in default.

You have no flexibility to change your coverage as your needs change.

If you decided you need coverage only until your mortgage is repaid but later realize you require coverage for other needs, you can convert your insurance to a permanent plan.
