Here are some frequently asked questions we've been asked about our Mortgage and Lifestyle Protect product which you may find helpful before making your decision.
Mortgage & Lifestyle Protection gives you long-term protection for your mortgage or rent payments to protect the home you love. It can also cover the cost of living if you can't work because of sickness or an accident. You also have the option of taking out unemployment cover. See types of cover.
The plan helps to protect your income long term, if you're unable to work as a result of an accident or sickness. You also have the option to add unemployment cover, which offers some protection if you become unemployed, to help you meet your mortgage payments and living expenses over a short period.
Yes, the premium is guaranteed for the term of the plan. There are no premium reviews or increases, no matter how many claims are made. Where inflation-linked cover is chosen (only available for Living Expenses Protection), the premium and cover increase each year in line with increases in the Retail Prices Index. If you choose unemployment cover, the premium you pay includes Insurance Premium Tax. If the government change the rate of insurance premium tax, then the premium you pay may also change.
There was a change in the insurance premium tax on the 1 November 2015, taking it from 6% to 9.5%. For more information visit gov.uk/government/publications.
