The Importance of Mortgage Insurance
First in Series....
Mortgage Insurance through your Bank? Why you may not be as protected as you think.
Are You Really Protected?
As a proud home owner like most Canadians, your home is the centre of your family and social life.
Once all the fees, expenses, legalities are settled, have you thought of how your family would manage the mortgage payments in event of death or critical illness.
Your home is your most important investment. Makes sense to keep it secure for your family. Many Canadians aren’t familiar with how mortgage insurance works or the full extent of its coverage, leaving you vulnerable.
Did you first hear about mortgage insurance from your lender during the mortgage application process? Often presented as an easy to approve, affordable solution to pay off the debt in case of death or critical illness allowing your family to remain in your home.
Unfortunately, This is Not Always the Case
Banks don't determine if you are qualified for mortgage insurance at the time of your application. They decide after a claim has been made through POST-CLAIM underwriting. Any discrepancies on your application, your claim could be DENIED!
Ensure you obtain the right coverage.
Second in Series.....
A home will probably be the largest single investment in your lifetime. It's a valuable asset....
You insure valuables with fire and contents insurance whereas YOUR MORTGAGE IS YOUR LARGEST DEBT!
- With mortgage insurance from a bank, you have level premium payments but declining insurance coverage.
- Not so if your insurance is protected by Desjardins.
- The insurance value does not reduce with your mortgage.
- Your premiums remain level as your mortgage reduces.
- Adding value to your insurance for your beneficiaries.
Ensure you obtain the right coverage.
