- Mortgage-protection life assurance covers the repayment of the outstanding amount of your mortgage should you die during the term of the policy;
- The above policy can also be extended to include critical illness - pays out a lump sum following the death of the person whose life is insured, or if they are diagnosed with a serious illness such as cancer or a heart attack.
- Income-protection will pay out a monthly income if you are unable to work as a result of illness or disability;
