Mortgage Protection Bundle

What is the Mortgage Protection Bundle?

The strategy relies on the principle of having a pool of money to provide protection for three risks – becoming disabled, having a critical illness, or passing away.

Mortgage Protection Bundle Summary

It is designed for those who have a mortgage, debt load or just want enhanced protection for their family at a substantial discount in many cases over the same products sold separately. It is particularly attractive to most people who have their mortgage insurance through an existing financial institution like a bank or credit union.

What is important is the disability benefit and critical illness products in this bundle are fully featured plans. The critical illness, for example covers 22 illnesses, not the three to five covered in most mortgage insurance plans offered by the banks. The disability payments cover you if you cannot do your regular occupation. Bank mortgage plans cover you for only two years while the Mortgage Protection Bundle provides up to 16.6 years of disability payments.

The following table shows that the probability of dying before age 65 is only between 5.2% and 7.0% (female/male) while the probability of having a critical illness or disability claim prior to age 65 is between 52.5% and 59.3% (female/male) yet few people have insurance to cover these risks. That is why the Mortgage Protection Bundle strategy is an important consideration.

Introducing Synergy from Manulife Insurance

The product really does an great job of covering off the three major risks. The first two (disability and critical illness insurance) are most common and there is a better than 50% chance you will experience one of them by the age of 65. These policies actually pay you the benefit. It was designed to provide sufficient insurance to cover most mortgage payments, not for two years like bank insurance, but for up to 16 years if you cannot do your regular occupation. This alone is a huge advantage over bank and group disability insurance.

Similarly, if you have a critical illness there are numerous uncovered costs and a lump sum payments is so welcomed. Some costs would include transportation and parking, uncovered drugs and medications, and enabling a spouse to take a leave of absence or time off just to there. It covers 22 illnesses unlike the three to five covered by bank and group critical illness policies.

While it is limited to $500,000 of life in the package, we can add affordable term life insurance riders to the policy that will fully cover the risks of dying.

Protect yourself, not your bank

It’s become routine. Secure a mortgage with any lending institution and most likely you’ll be told that you need to buy mortgage insurance, serious illness or disability, or all of it just to cover your mortgage, not you.

What the lender is really asking you to do is protect their company. The coverage is designed as creditor protection and the benefits would be used only to pay off any remaining mortgage balance – no matter what other needs you may have.

With most bank’s mortgage insurance:

  • You are part of a group policy owned by the bank, underwritten by an insurance company, not the bank, and the bank is the beneficiary

  • Benefits go directly to the lender to pay off the mortgage

 With Manulife Synergy:

  • You’re protected for all three risks: life, critical illness and disability insurance that provide you with a better, value-added mortgage balance protection solution.

  • You own the Synergy solution and name your beneficiary. If you become disabled before age 65 and can’t work, you receive a monthly benefit to help replace your income, and may well be more than your mortgage payment.

  • If before age 65 you are diagnosed with one of the 22 defined covered conditions, you receive a lump sum benefit to use however you want.

  • In the event of death before age 65, the life insurance benefit goes to your beneficiary to use however they want.
