The risks linked to the subscription of a mortgage loan are unlikely but, if they do occur, they are really harmful.

Mortgage-linked insurances are there to protect the insured’s estate when their life goes awry. If what is in danger is the income of the person who contracted the loan, the payment protection benefits assume the payment of the mortgage loan for a period of time due to the interruption of that income (for example, due to a work stoppage). . In the case of risks linked to human life, life insurance assumes the payment, often total, of the outstanding loan installments in the event that the person responsible for paying the mortgage dies, has a long illness or accrues invalid .

In this way, the patrimony of the person and often also of the family unit is protected, which is not overwhelmed by the need to face the needs of the loan. In fact, the own possession of the house is being protected, avoiding with the payment that they lose the house.
