Are you paying too much for your mortgage insurance?

January 16, 2017

Most of us, struggling to make our mortgage payments, realize the importance of financially securing our home and our lifestyle by putting in place some life insurance. Your bank or lending institution does too! They will usually require that the loan amount be covered by life insurance to protect them in the unfortunate situation of you dying before the loan is paid.

The problem is that most of us are so excited about buying our new home, we quickly check mark the box to indicate that we want the mortgage life insurance without checking the market to see if you are paying too much. For smokers or unhealthy individuals, this type of creditor insurance can be an excellent value. For the vast majority of us, healthy, non-smokers, will likely get a better rate by shopping the market.

As a life insurance advisor, I can compare products from over thirty Canadian life insurance companies to get you the best value in the market place.
