Mortgage Protection at Acorn Life

Mortgage Protection

When it comes to your family, what do you hope for? That they will always be safe and have a roof over their heads if you are no longer there to take care of them? With the Mortgage Protection Plan from Acorn Life, it’s easy and affordable to ensure that your family would not lose their home if you die before your mortgage is paid off.

How Does It Work?

The Life Cover benefit is initially set based on the amount of your mortgage. As you pay off your mortgage, the cover is designed to reduce to reflect the reducing amount owed. The fact that the level of cover reduces over the term of your plan helps to keep the cost of this plan lower than other forms of life assurance. The amount of life cover you need and the length of time you should be protected for will depend on the amount of your mortgage and how long you have left to pay it off.
