I HAVE A MORTGAGE

self-employed-income-protection

Having a mortgage is probably the biggest financial commitment in your life right now and has been the result of a lot of hard work and saving. If you would struggle to keep a roof of your head if you were unable to work, then Mortgage Protection insurance may be right for you. If you have a mortgage you may be able to insure based not only on your mortgage repayment amount, but on your income – working out what is right for your situation is best done with advice as not all Mortgage Protection insurance policies are created equal.

I DON’T HAVE A MORTGAGE

DISCLAIMER

Even if you don’t have a mortgage, you can still take out Mortgage Protection insurance. Mortgage Protection has evolved over the years to allow policies based on your income, not just your mortgage repayments. If you rely on your income to cover everyday living costs or you have a family to provide for, Mortgage Protection could help you survive if you were unable to keep working. If you would like to look at your options and compare prices, get in touch with us now or read about the difference between Mortgage Protection and Income Protection here.

Paul did alot of work to find the right policy for me, was very patient as I wavered, and even helped me with the right questions to ask of my insurer on their parallel policy. Overall he proved an excellent broker whom I'd gladly recommend, and go back to myself.

ABOUT US

Comparing mortgage protection insurance can be extremely frustrating. This site is designed to give you an idea of what policy may be best for you based on your employment and debt situation.
Comparing insurance companies alone is fine when you’re buying on price for simple insurances such as a car or house. But covering your mortgage repayments or income in New Zealand is a little different as we have ACC for self-employed and employed kiwis which should be taken into consideration when buying private cover.

We designed this site to break down the most common outcomes when buying mortgage protection. Once broken down, you will need to get online advice from one of our dedicated advisers who can help structure your cover in the most cost-effective way.

HOW DOES MORTGAGE PROTECTION INSURANCE WORK?

What-is-Mortgage-Protection-Insurnace

Mortgage protection insurance provides you with a monthly benefit if you are unable to continue working. For example, if you were unable to continue working due to a serious accident or illness, mortgage protection insurance could provide you with a replacement income of up to 62.5% of your pre-disability income or up to 115% of your mortgage repayments.

Whilst only 62.5% of your pre-disability income does not seem much, it is important to note that the benefit you receive from your mortgage protection benefit is net of tax. Furthermore, most Mortgage Protection benefits are not offset by ACC, so may still be entitled to receive a pay out from your insurer should you be unable to work due to an accident (note that most income protection plans are offset by ACC).

If the worst were to happen and you were unable to return to work for the long term, a mortgage protection benefit could continue to provide you with a replacement income for 1, 2 or 5 years, or even to age 70 depending upon which option you selected when you put your cover in place.

It is also prudent to remember that Government benefits are unlikely to cover your living and lifestyle expenses and that ACC only provides a replacement income if you are unable to work due to an accident. If you were faced with being unable to work due to an illness or degenerative condition, ACC would be of no use in this situation – could you continue to survive with little to no access to Government assistance? If you do not have access to extensive savings and you have financial commitments, it may be time to look at your mortgage protection options.

Across insurance companies there are various names for mortgage protection insurance benefits. Some benefits are referred to as mortgage and income protection, mortgage and living cover and even mortgage and rent cover. Also, in the event of a claim some providers pay your cover directly to the bank you hold your mortgage with and some pay directly to you. Essentially, all provide a replacement income in the event that something goes wrong, but finding which product and provider is best suited to you depends on factors such as whether to not you have a mortgage, if you are an employee or self-employed and even what bells and whistles you may prefer.

No matter what type of mortgage protection benefit you select, it is important to seek professional advice as not all policies are created equal and you want to ensure that you understand what you are and are not covered for. This means you’ll still be able to meet your financial commitments and make choices that are important to you.
