Mortgage Protection Insurance

Mortgage Protection Insurance

Explaining it the simplest way, mortgage protection insurance is no more than an insurance policy that will pay the amount the beneficiary selects, up to the remaining balance owed on the home, in the event of your death. This benefit covers the outstanding principle balance owed on the primary mortgage, making payment directly to the lien holder (beneficiary).

For those families in a two-income household or where there is one primary breadwinner, mortgage protection insurance provides the peace-of-mind that in the event of your death, your family will not be held liable for paying a mortgage they may no longer be able to afford.

Mortgage Protection Insurance (MPI) vs. Mortgage Insurance Premiums (MIP)

While mortgage protection insurance offers an economical benefit for hundreds-of-thousands of families across the U.S., it can prove challenging to sell. This type of insurance is often misunderstood by consumers who confuse it with the mortgage insurance premium (MIP) they pay on their FHA loan. Private Mortgage Protection Insurance (MPI) and the FHA Mortgage Insurance Premium (MIP) are two completely different types of coverage.

The MIP, or Mortgage Insurance Premium that a consumer pays on a home loan protects the government, not the consumer. In the event of a foreclosure, the government will receive a percentage of the money owed on the home, paid out of the loan’s MIP. The consumer will still have to file for bankruptcy and the family will lose their home.

MPI, or mortgage protection insurance, protects the consumer and their family. If a death results in the family no longer being able to afford mortgage payments, the Mortgage Protection Insurance policy will pay the remaining balance owed on the home, negating the need to file for bankruptcy and allowing the family to keep their home.

Selling mortgage protection insurance requires an agent to be knowledgeable about the misconceptions associated with this product. He or she can act more as an educator and counselor, than a salesperson.
