Mortgage protection insurance highlights one of the biggest debts a person can have, and earmarks money specifically for it. If your family receives a lump sum of money, it can be overwhelming knowing how to allocate it appropriately.Mortgage protection insurance takes the guesswork out of it.

Because it’s matched up to the mortgage balance, and the money will go only toward that, there’s no worrying that there won’t be enough to cover the remaining mortgage. As with other types of loans, falling behind on your payments could seriously hurt your credit, and may even lead to losing your home. When you die, your mortgage protection insurance will continue making your monthly payments until the death benefit runs out.
