+ How is it different to Income Protection Insurance?
Mortgage and Rent Insurance is generally for people who want to just protect the roof over their head if something should happen, and can look after other expenses using other means. Your adviser will be able to discuss which policy works for you. What's great is that it also pays the benefit even if you’re receiving ACC weekly compensation if an accident has stopped you from working.
+ How long will I have to wait before my payments start?
When you set up your policy, you’ll decide how long the wait period is before you start receiving payments. Chat to your adviser about the different options - there’s 30, 60 or 90 days wait to choose from.
+ Can I get cover for being made redundant?
Yes, usually you can get redundancy cover at an additional cost if you've already taken out Mortgage and Rent Cover with us. This is a great option as it pays out for up to six months if you’re made redundant. Certain conditions apply.
