Accident, Sickness and Unemployment
This is one of the most common protection products as a mortgage payment is often someone’s biggest commitment. Commonly known as Accident, Sickness and Unemployment cover (ASU), this can give you peace of mind knowing that, in the event of redundancy or illness, your mortgage payments will be made and your home will be safe.
Most standard mortgages do not have any protection insurance included, so it's important to decide what kind of separate cover you need. Usually payments are made for up to a maximum of 12 months, but if you would like to be covered for longer than this you may want to consider taking out income protection.
