What is Loan Protection?

When it comes to insuring your car or home, you wouldn’t think twice. But what about protecting your ability to meet your financial commitments, like taking out insurance to help cover your home loan repayments?

If you were to suffer from a serious illness or accident and were unable to work, became involuntarily unemployed, or if something worse were to happen, the last thing you’d want your family to worry about is your home loan repayments.

Loan Protection is insurance designed to help cover your repayments and ease the burden on your loved ones.

As with any insurance, when deciding if you need Loan Protection you need to consider how you would manage some life changing events. Consider the questions below.

•    Could your family keep their home if you were no longer around?
•    If you involuntarily lost your job, how would you be able to pay your home loan?
•    How much pressure would your repayments put on your family if you couldn’t work due to illness or injury?
•    If you were diagnosed with a medical trauma like cancer, would you and your family need a financial buffer to allow you to focus on getting better?

Choose the cover that’s right for you

CommBank offers you the ability to choose the types and level of cover that best meets your needs. You can insure 25%, 50% or 100% of your home loan up to a total of $750,000.
