No, only the borrowers on the loan can be covered by Loan Protection.

If you have a joint loan, you can apply for joint Loan Protection cover. This means you’ll both be covered by the one policy and both be policy owners. If your policy islinked to a Home Loan you can choose a different combination of cover types, which means that you could have Loan Cover while the other borrower has both Loan Cover and Loan Repayment Cover.
