Understanding Protection: Safeguarding What Matters Most

Protection isn't just a word; it's a promise to keep you and your loved ones secure when life throws curveballs your way.

Life is ever-changing—new homes, career shifts, and growing families are just a few milestones that could alter your protection needs. That's why it's crucial to revisit your coverage options, especially when you're making a significant financial move like getting a new mortgage.

The Essentials: Types of Protection

Life Insurance

Life insurance is more than a policy; it's peace of mind. It ensures that your family is financially secure, even if you're not around. While it's not mandatory for a mortgage, we highly recommend it, especially if you have dependents.

Mortgage Payment Protection

Also known as Accident, Sickness, and Unemployment Cover (ASU), this protection takes care of your mortgage payments for up to two years if you're unable to work.

Critical Illness Cover

This policy is your financial backup if a critical illness strikes. It provides a tax-free lump sum that can be used to settle your mortgage or other expenses. 

Buildings and Contents Insurance

This insurance is your safety net against unforeseen damages like fires or floods. It's a must-have for mortgage approval, and we suggest you don't overlook the contents part either.

Income Protection

If illness or injury keeps you from working, income protection steps in, offering a financial cushion until you're back on your feet.

Mover Protection

If unexpected events disrupt your property buying or selling process, mover protection helps you recover the costs you've already incurred.
