What if we already have Mortgage Insurance?
Many people confuse Mortgage Protection with Private Mortgage Insurance (PMI). PMI is a Gap insurance policy required by mortgage lenders and secured at the time of closing. The policy normally covers 20% of the mortgage or the basic mortgage interest. This means, if you are unable to make your mortgage payment, the lender is covered but you are not. Mortgage Insurance policies benefit individuals.

Why do I need Mortgage Insurance Protection?
Your mortgage may be a new financial obligation you did not have when you acquired your existing life insurance, so you may not have enough benefit to pay off the mortgage in a case of disability, critical illness or death.

In addition, work disability protection typically covers 50-70% or less of your gross income. Will half of your salary cover your annual bills?

In the event of job loss, would you have enough coverage?
A Mortgage Insurance Policy is your personal property and belongs to you and your family whether you are employed or not. The policy goes with you, if you move or re-finance your mortgage.

Do I need Mortgage Insurance coverage if I already have coverage from my employer?
Work benefits are great, but they are controlled by your employer and end when you leave your job, regardless of the reason. Do you know how much protection your employer provides? Would it pay-off your family's debt and home mortgage if you died? If not, Total Mortgage Protection is your answer.

Couldn't my estate just sell my assets if I die?
Yes, your estate could liquidate your assets, but how much are they worth? The typical mortgage is between $75,000 and $200,000. If your family sold everything you own would they make that much? For most of us, our estates are not that valuable and few people have those dollars in the bank.

Mortgage Life Insurance and Disability Insurance Policies offer living benefits to make your mortgage payment in case of disability and critical illness. In addition, it is possible to get all your money back at the end of the policy.

Is a medical exam required to apply for coverage?
With most Mortgage Insurance policies you do NOT need an exam! Based on the answers you provide regarding the policy's health questions, the carriers may only require additional information from your doctor. Total Mortgage Protection always treats your medical information confidentially, as required by Federal Law.

When does Mortgage Insurance coverage become effective?
With Mortgage Insurance in most cases, right away, but your Total Mortgage Protection agent always makes sure you understand any special conditions that apply.

Conditional Receipt: A receipt given for premium payment accompanying an application for insurance. If the application is approved as applied for, the coverage is effective on the later of the date of prepayment or the date on which the last of the underwriting requirements, such as medical examination, has been received by the insurance company. A conditional receipt for premiums paid upon application may protect the proposed insured from changes in health occurring after the application and funds have been submitted to the insurance company.

When does Mortgage disability insurance coverage terminate?
Mortgage Insurance coverage remains in force until the policy term ends or until you reach age 65. (If your spouse is also covered and is younger than 65, your spouse coverage remains in effect until he/she turns 65.)

All Mortgage Insurance coverage stops if you discontinue premium payments or if you request termination of your policy.
