Why do I need Loan Protection insurance?

Why do I need Loan Protection insurance?

As with any insurance, deciding whether you need Loan Protection cover means you have to think about the worst case scenario. To help you determine whether you might need Loan Protection insurance, consider the questions below:

  • Are you the only person in your family generating an income?
  • If you lost your job tomorrow, how long would it be before you couldn’t afford to meet your loan repayments?
  • If you couldn’t work due to illness or injury, what kind of financial pressure would this put on you or your family?
  • Could your family manage to meet your financial commitments if you were no longer around?
  • Would you and your family be able to meet loan commitments without having to sell any assets or depleting your savings?

Personal loan customers can apply for both types of cover for all eligible borrowers for $25 per month. To find out what it would cost you to have Loan Protection Insurance on a home loan, use our calculator.
